Hmm..... looks like the Indian manned spacecraft is currently ahead of many of the American spacecrafts under design.  ::)

Hrm? In reference to what? India has quite a ways to go before any such statements are worth while, thought I do wish them the best.

Oops..... it was meant to be a satire remark on how those Indian newspapers and even some people at ISRO speak of flying human in orbit and beyond as if they are already ready to go, when in fact such a decision hasn't been made yet and it won't reach its goal in at least this decade.....apparently it didn't work.
Hmm....where can I apply for the job of United Launch Alliance internet cheerleader?

Updates 2012-2013

As part of pre project activities, drop test of full scale Crew Module were conducted successfully to understand the deceleration characteristics and validate the estimated values of g level, touchdown velocity and depth of penetration. Scale models of Crew Module have been realised for heat transfer studies, plasma wind tunnel tests and aero-ballistic range tests were conducted. Mortar based parachute ejection and deployment tests carried out in single and clustered configuration. Environmental simulation chamber has been realised for testing of ECLSS functional modules and flight suit systems. Flight suit has been successfully tested in vacuum chamber for leak rate assessment and material compatibility under
vacuum conditions.

Is there any plan for a sub-orbital flight ?

No plans.

Very much!! first all required tech blocks need to be developed then only ISRO will take decision to conduct manned mission.

Do you want more?  ;D

That last one was nice but a little small - do you have larger versions?

ISRO to modify PSLV PS4 (4th stage) into a service module for manned missions.

Update: A concept art of ISRO's Orbital vehicle (right image). It is based on a modified PSLV PS4 stage (left image).

From the concept art, the orbital vehicle will consists of following modules:

1) PS4 stage + service module 2) crew module
