The ISRO on Wednesday announced that work on the country's third lunar mission, Chandrayaan-3 was on and the launch may shift to next year.

Addressing a press conference here, ISRO chairman K Sivan said all activities related to the third lunar mission were going on smoothly.

It will also have a lander, rover and a propulsion module like its predecessor, he said.

On the cost of the project, Sivan said, "the mission would cost Rs 250 crore."

The launch of Chandrayaan 3 may shift to next year, he said.
