The Indian Space Research Organisation today lost contact with the GSAT-6A satellite. The control room at the SHAR spaceport in Sriharikota is making concerted attempts to re-establish the link with the satellite.

In a communique on its website, the ISRO said after successful long-duration firings, when the satellite was on course to the normal operating configuration for the third and final firing, scheduled for April 1, communication from the satellite was lost. The second orbit raising operation was successfully carried out by LAM Engine firing for about 53 minutes on March 31 morning.
