Their GSLV is already Delta II/Titan II class, so a modest capsule (no docking capability?) shouldn't be too hard.

GSLV is to have a heavier solid first stage, so a bigger spacecraft may be possible.

A t/Space type capsule would be a better fit atop this GSLV than slung under a 747. Mark Wade fell for t/Space and bashed CEV here. I trust the primes more than I trust Gump--and Wade has been drinking a bit too much of the alt.space cool-aid:

A defect in a device meant to regulate propellant flow led to malfunctioning in the fourth strap-on stage, causing the failure of the July 10 GSLV mission that was to put India's heaviest satellite so far into orbit, a report of the 15-member Failure Analysis Committee said.

The committee, headed by senior Isro scientist K Narayana, made the report public on Wednesday in the presence of Isro chairman G Madhavan Nair and a host of other senior Isro officials from around the country.
