The shortlisted crew members, who have been chosen from the Indian Air Force, are Group Captain Prashanth Balakrishnan Nair, Group Captain Ajit Krishnan, Group Captain Angad Pratap, and Wing Commander Shubhanshu Shukla. They have undergone intense training for 13 months in Russia and are now preparing for the mission in India. 

This human space mission is the first of its kind for India and will cost around Rs.90.23 billion. The Indian Space Research Organisation is carrying out a number of tests to prepare for the mission. If it succeeds in its mis- sion, India will become the fourth country to send a human into space after the Soviet Union, the US, and China.
