It should be noted that this is the longest missile launch that ISRO has handled, as it will take 2 hours 21 minutes to to reach the space and the two orbits. "It is also to a great extent the patronage available from PM Modi, that ISRO registered successes one after the other", reported ANI.

This will be the third satellite in the Cartosat-2 series.

"This is a very special moment for ISRO", said K Sivan after the launch was deemed successful. "Cartosat's performance has been so far satisfactory", said retiring Isro chairman AS Kiran Kumar. The 28 worldwide customer satellites are being launched as part of the commercial arrangements between ISRO and its commercial arm "Antrix Corporation Ltd".

Islamabad said New Delhi must refrain from putting the new satellite to military use which could create trouble in the region.

"Basically...the 100 satellites covers all student satellites also that have been put (by ISRO)", he told reporters at the post-launch briefing.

Today, the space agency said that the successful PSLV launch proved that the problems identified during last year's failure have been addressed and rectified.

The 28 worldwide customer satellites are being launched as part of a commercial deal between Antrix, a Government of India company under the Department of Space, and global customers. This would be the 42nd flight of the PSLV.

Cartosat 2F and 29 of the PSLV's secondary payloads will separate from the PSLV in a 313-mile-high (505-kilometer) sun-synchronous type orbit in the first 25 minutes of the mission. It is carrying the 710 kg Cartosat-2 series satellite which consists of special panchromatic and multi-spectral cameras operating in time delay integration mode to deliver high-resolution data. In this context, ISRO has taken four-month interval to revisit some of the core areas.
