They brought some models of the satellite along with them and performed special pujas for a successful launch. The new satellite is an indigenous version of Global Position Satellite (GPS) of America and if launched successfully and functions effectively, it will make use of the foreign satellite redundant. The rocket will be launched this evening from Shar, in Nellore.

Since the last two decades, heads of the space agency have made it a practice to visit the the over 2000 year-old Tirumala hill temple to seek divine blessings before every satellite launch, the sources said.
