GLSV Mk-III and Human Spaceflight Program Get Funding Boost

The Modi govt's new budget has given a major funding increase for ISRO's new flagship GSLV Mk-3 rocket, as well as for the Human Spaceflight Program:
The first budget of the Narendra Modi government has given a powerful boost to the GSLV Mark 3 rocket programme with its budgetary allocation rocketing from Rs 10 crore to Rs 171 crore.
The amount earmarked for the human space flight programme has also gone up: from Rs 9.19 crore to Rs 17.05 crore. This project, too, has been considerably delayed and Isro officials hope the new government will give its green signal at the earliest. 

Now that's more like it!
