It is to be noted here that ISRO is making progress by leapss and bounds after it set in last  June,a national record after it successfully launched a rocket carrying 20 satellites, including 13 from the US.

In 2013 ISRO shot off an unmanned rocket to orbit Marsat a cost of just $73 million, compared with NASA's Maven Mars mission which cost them  a whopping $671 million. ISRO is planning for a second mission to Mars in 2021-2022 and there are plans to put a robot on the Red Planet.
