In the end of 1980s and beginning of 1990s India had plans to develop the small Space Shuttle named Hyperplane that would to be orbited by non-reusable launchers.[citation needed]

Then plans differed to project Avatar (spacecraft) as a single-stage system. The Indian Space Research Organisation indicates that this vehicle is planned for development after 2010.[1][2]

In parallel, India has more realistic and currently working the programme of manned spaceflights from 2014 to 2015 with non-reusable conventional spacecraft Orbital Vehicle launched by non-reusable launcher GSLV.[citation needed]
