They said the similar thing in 2019 but let's hope it doesn't get delayed further.

News of chandrayan 3 suggests that GOI is interfering hard in ISRO's projects, i don't like it. BJP most probably pushed for chandrayan 2 though I don't have any sources but some parts of me believes that it was rushed due to the political pressure and probably wasn't tested enough.

Issue was software and algorithm, they stated.

I used the term 'interfering' rather than 'pressure', both are different. ISRO has its own plans and pace and resources allocated according to that and any obstruction and interference can cause or affect their operational history, efficiency just my opinion based on the recent failures starting from chandrayan 2 to most recent gslv, gsat-1 sat along with regular delays, lack of transparency so on.

Our PSUs need to change recruitment policy.
Even PhD students especially from Aerospace are treated non-useful forget btech and mtech this is why we're not able to tap our brainpower to the fullest

That awkward moment when you call ISRO a "PSU".

Its hard for ISRO now to come back in full mode. Only concentrating on gaganyaan. Hope gaganyaan succedd.
Agreed. I believe all the recent delays in ISRO are to do with the intense focus on Gaganyaan compounded with Covid woes. ISRO has created an entirely new vertical of Human Spacefight that didn't exist a couple years ago. And if Chandrayaan-2's failure is considered such a big PR disaster at ISRO, imagine what if (Gods forbid) Gaganyaan failure leads to loss of human life. Remember Saras? No wonder ISRO is laser focused on Gaganyaan. And at the same time they are trudging along in other projects such as SCE-200 and SC-120, C-32, satellites, IDRSS, Chandrayaan 3, Shukrayaan, Aditya, upgrades of first and second launch pads, HLV, design of third launch pad, VTVL, RLV, SSLV, etc. I'd give them a bit more time before judging them too harshly.

i stand corrected...ISRO is not a PSU but it's a government organization. It comes under department of space, govt of india. It doesn't come under any ministry and is directely under Prime ministers office.

still...lack of transparency, scaling up the capabilities, meeting deadlines for projects is similar to PSUs only

The current deadline slippages are partially a result of trying to massively scale up on a shoestring budget. ISRO is planning to achieve half of what the Chinese space program has with a 5th of that budget. I'd say its pretty ambitious.
Lack of transparency, especially regarding Chandrayaan-2 is a bit worrying nevertheless.
