Only three countries, the United States, the former Soviet Union and China, have made a soft landing on the surface of the moon.
A revised release date will be announced later, the agency added.
The mission had been announced as a significant step for India, as it tries to realize its spatial ambitions. In the last 10 years, the Indian space agency has launched multiple missions into space to gain a better understanding of Mars and the Moon.
The country aims to become a global space power and Indian astronauts in space by 2022.
The aborted mission comes almost 50 years after Apollo 11 launched its historic feat to put the first human on the moon.
The mission had three elements: the lunar orbiter, the lander and the scout vehicle, all developed by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO). Once in orbit, the lander, named Vikram by the pioneer of the Indian space program Vikram Sarabhai, would separate from the orbiter and land gently on the surface of the moon near its South Pole, around September 6.
It was expected that a robotic robot named Pragyan (wisdom) would unfold and spend a lunar day, or 14 Earth days, collect mineral and chemical Samples to examine the composition of the lunar surface. During the following year, the orbiter would map the lunar surface and study the outer atmosphere of the moon.
In addition to coinciding with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landing, the aborted launch occurs when other space agencies review the idea of sending humans to the Moon and beyond.
