Chandrayaan-2, which has home-grown technology, will explore a region of Moon where no mission has ever set foot.
The spacecraft consists of an orbiter, a lander and a rover together referred to as "composite body".
The probe`s total mass is 3.8 ton and it is expected to land on Moon`s South Polar Region on September 6 or 7 this year.
It will be the first Indian expedition to attempt a soft landing on the lunar surface.
This mission will make India the fourth country after the US, Russia and China to carry out a soft landing on Moon.
