India's advanced communication satellite GSAT-8 would be launched on May 21 from Kourou in French Guiana by the European space consortium Arianespace.

"All the pre-launch activities are progressing satisfactorily," Bangalore-headquartered Indian Space Research Organisation said in a statement today.

GSAT-8 would be launched on board Ariane-V rocket at 0208 hours (IST) on May 21. The launch was originally scheduled for May 20 but waspostponed by a day due to certain additional inspection that had been taken up by Arianespace, ISRO said.
