There are some Private non-governmental teams that are planning to do so, without help from Governments.

Infact , putting 'anything' on the moon has fast become a fashion where anyone can venture into and implement.

This is where ISRO is poised to be a major player in the world. A lot of private Space enthusiasts may soon approach them for payload space. ISRO is the cheapest and the best deployment service at the moment.

( No, I'm not an ISRO employee or beneficiary; just a serious minded tech. geek interested in these things....and a hard-core Patriot! )

I believe ISRO should not be positioning itself as the "cheapest" in this service. This may be a lucrative area. But it derails their talented staff's time & energies to something not-so-cutting edge. Given the breakthrough developments they achieved in CY-1, we look forward for much focussed high aimed endevours in CY-2 & 3.

Putting a telescope on Moon is not a good idea. It is barely any better than any other surface telescope. It also carries significant weight & overhead if has to be really usable. Keeping telescopes in space gives them better view & power. A telescope that is left to orbit around moon is far better than a telescope that is landed on moon. That can be used both to zoom Moon's surfaces and observe asteroids or other space objects around earth.

Chandrayaan-II does not have a telescope on-board.

NASA is proposing to do studies for a possible position for a future and improved version of the Hubble Telescope. The Second Lagrangian Point (L2) is expected to be a good place to put a telescope.

L2 is on the lunar far-side and hence the Moon acts as a natural barrier that reduces Earth-shine and the intensity of sun-shine enabling the telescope to look at fainter objects.

warm regards,
