BANGALORE (PTI): India's GSLV rocket, powered by home-made cryogenic engine for the first time, would be launched on April 15 from Sriharikota to place into orbit GSAT-4 experimental satellite.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) also fixed May 5 as the date for the launch of the Cartosat-2B by Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV).

The mission readiness review conducted by ISRO at Sriharikota on Sunday finalised the dates, and gave the go-ahead for the two launches, official sources said.

The GSLV would be powered by home-made cryogenic engine for the first time. Previous GSLV flights were fitted with Russian engines.

Besides the Cartosat-2B, the PSLV would also have on board an Algerian satellite and some small and nano satellites, ISRO sources said.
