India's maiden Mars mission, launched in November last year, is likely to reach the Red Planet in 200 days, the state-owned space agency has said.

"If everything goes as planned, MOM (Mars Orbiter Mission) will get inserted into its Martian orbit around, exactly after 200 days from today," the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) said in a posting on its social networking site Facebook page Friday night.

So far, the Mars mission has traveled some 21 million km, after performing six orbit raising maneuvers around the Earth. It is scheduled to reach Red Planet's orbit on Sept. 24 this year.

If the Mars mission reaches its destination, then India would become the world's sixth country after the United States, Russia, Europe, Japan and China to achieve such a feat.
