A series of maneuvers will be carried out to raise its orbit and put Chandrayaan-2 on Lunar Transfer Trajectory. On entering Moon's sphere of influence, on-board thrusturs will slow down the spacecraft for Lunar Capture. The Orbit of Chandrayaan-2 around the Moon will be Circularized to 100X100 km orbit through a series of orbital maneuvers.
