Bengaluru-headquartered ISRO has over the years realised five generations of launch vehicles – SLV-3, ASLV, PSLV, GSLV, and GSLV-MkIII and now plans to develop a new line up of Next Generation Super Heavy Launch Vehicle to be called as Heavy Launch Vehicle (HLV) 1 and HLV-2 as seen in the above images that can put a 5ton payload into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) and is also Capable Of Re-flight.

HLV-2 with 2 SC120 (boosters) can put a 7.5ton payload into Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit (GTO) or 23ton payload into low-Earth orbit (LEO). HLV-1 and HLV-2 will be reusable, which refly the most expensive parts of the rocket, which in turn drives down the cost of space access.

Another launch vehicle that was revealed was the development of a Nano-Satellite Launch Vehicle (NSLV) that will sit below the Small Satellite Launch Vehicle (or SSLV) making it the smallest rocket in the ISRO Launch Vehicle family.
