BENGALURU (PTI): The launch of India's fourth Navigation Satellite IRNSS-1D - that was deferred earlier this month after an anomaly was found in one of the telemetry transmitters of the spacecraft - has now been scheduled for March 28, ISRO said Monday.

"The launch of India's fourth Navigation Satellite IRNSS-1D onboard PSLV-C27 is now scheduled at 1719 hrs IST in the evening on Saturday, March 28, 2015 from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota," ISRO posted on its Facebook page.

The launch that was earlier scheduled for March 9 was deferred after an anomaly was found in one of the telemetry transmitters of the spacecraft.

The launch would put in place India's own navigation system on par with the Global Positioning System of the US.

IRNSS-1D is the fourth in the series of seven satellites ISRO is planning to launch to put in place the Indian Regional Navigation Satellite System (IRNSS).

While four satellites would be sufficient to start operations of the system, the remaining three satellites would make it more accurate and efficient.
