"This image was taken on Tuesday at around 1.50pm from a height of almost 70,000 km above earth and has a spatial resolution of 3.5 km... We are certain we're going to get some great shots in the orbit of Mars," the message reads.
"This is not a planned process and is done as and when it can be. The command is done from our ground station near Bangalore. We hope to take a few more photos before the spacecraft moves out of earth's orbit," said a spokesperson of Isro.
The photo clearly shows India, the Indian Ocean, Bay of Bengal , the Himalayas and the Indo-Gangetic plain.
The spacecraft will move out of the earth's orbit on December 01 at around 0023 hours. It will then take a 300 days voyage before entering into Mars orbit in September 2014.
