He was taken on January 5, 2014 at 10:48 UTC clock with a GSLV rocket from launch site Sriharikota into a transfer orbit with a perigee of 175 km, an apogee of 35,945 km and an inclination of 19.3 °. From there, the satellite reached its geostationary orbit using its own engines. It was the first successful launch with this launcher after a series of four failures. In this mission, there were problems. So the start was to take place in August, 2013, but resigned, among other things an equally inexplicably to start gone unnoticed as huge leak in the fuel tank of the second stage, in which leaked several hundred liters of hydrazine.
