ISRO's plan to soft-land Chandrayaan-2's Vikram module on the Lunar surface did not go as per script in the early hours of Saturday, with the lander losing communication with ground stations.
Vikram's descent was as planned and normal performance was observed up to an altitude of 2.1 km.
Subsequently, communication from Lander to the ground stations was lost, ISRO said, adding that data was being analysed.
