The co-passenger satellites include a microsatellite and one nanosatellite from India along with 3 microsatellites and 25 nanosatellites from other countries.

Along with the satellites, the Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle or PSLV lifted off from 9.29 pm.

The flight on Friday is the first since a rare mission failure on August 31 previous year when a PSLV rocket did not release a protective heat shield that cocoons a rocket's satellite payloads from the high temperatures during the journey into space.

The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has congratulated ISRO team for the successful launch of its 100th satellite.

The launch of the 100th satellite by ISRO signifies both its glorious achievements, and also the bright future of India's space programme.

The launch of the second national probe to the Moon: Chandrayaan-2 (lunar vehicle, in Sanskrit) in March 2019, is among the most striking proposals.

The 100-kg micro satellite, which was India's 100th satellite, was slotted into its sun synchronous orbit, at an altitude of 359 km above the Earth.

The previous mission to launch backup navigation satellite IRNSS-1H on board PSLV-C39 had failed after the heat shield did not separate in the final leg of the launch sequence, with the satellite getting stuck in the fourth stage of the rocket. "Out of the 31 Satellites, 28 belonging to 6 other countries are carried by today's launch". Cartosat will be used for capturing high-quality images for rural-urban applications and also for utility managements like road network monitoring. Shar director Kunhi Krishnan said the success was a tribute to the outgoing chairman A.S. Kirankumar and a welcome to chairman-designate Dr K. Sivan.
