The trial, which formed part of training exercise by the Strategic Forces Command of Indian Army, was fully successful, a defence official said.
The surface-to-surface, single-stage missile, powered by solid propellants, was test-fired from a mobile launcher at Abdul Kalam Island (Wheeler Island).
“The launch was undertaken as a part of periodic training activity by SFC to further consolidate operational readiness,” the official said.
The trajectory of the trial was tracked by a battery of sophisticated radars, telemetry observation stations, electro-optic instruments and naval ships from its launch till the missile hit the target area with accuracy, they said.
The missile, which has already been inducted into armed forces, has proved its excellent performance in terms of range, accuracy and lethality, the sources said.
The last trial of Agni-I, conducted on 27 November 2015 from the same base, was also successful.
