Indian private craft on the moon in 2016

Team Indus, a Delhi-based aerospace research team, was awarded $1 million in the Google Lunar XPrize, for having successfully completed a test of their landing system. It was among five out of 29 teams to be awarded for clearing a specified test.

Team Indus won for the lander, regarded as the most complicated piece, and therefore carrying the maximum prize of one million dollars. Though they were shortlisted for the imaging system too, they failed to win the $2, 50,000 prize in this category.
