The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has constituted a high-level committee to prepare a report on the proposed Chandrayaan-3 program, reported The Pioneer digital newspaper.

'Rover, lander and landing operations will get more focus this time and whatever deficiencies in the Chandrayaan-2 mission will be corrected,' stated sources at the Bengalauru-based space agency.

On September 7, ISRO attempted a soft landing of Chandrayaan-2's Vikram module on the lunar south pole, before losing communication with the lander.
