India is planning for a manned space mission in the year 2014. A number of technologies need to be developed by ISRO prior to the ambitious undertaking e.g. 200 tonne solid booster, 25 tonne cryogenic engines and 110 tonne liquid stage engines as core boosters. The project requires 10,000 crore of funding. This year the Government of India has increased the grant for this project from 4 crore to 125 crore.
