This PSLV-C40 launched 31 satellites including 710 kg Cartosat-2 Series Satellite for earth observation and 30 co-passenger satellites together weighing about 613 kg at lift-off.
India has carried out dozens of satellite launches since 1999, carrying more than 200 satellites for countries around the globe, according to data from the state-run Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).

ISRO also demonstrated the PSLV's capability to place multiple rockets in multiple orbits in a single mission.
The Cartosat-2 remote-sensing satellite which is equipped with a Panchromatic Camera and a high-resolution multi-spectral instrument will prove to be a shot-in-the-arm for India's military surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities.
"ISRO is starting 2018 with the successful launch. all customer satellites (besides Cartosat and nanosat) released and the microast after one hour".
Contrary to the media reports over Isro's century with respect to satellites of India with the launch of three satellites of the country on Friday, Isro chairman A.S. Kirankumar said the number referred to satellites rolled out of Isro's satellite centre in Bengaluru. So far Cartosat performance is satisfactory, he said at the mission control room. The appointments committee of the Cabinet had already approved the proposal based on the recommendation of a cabinet subcommittee on space for the appointment of VSSC director K Sivan as Secretary, Department of Space and Chairman of Space Commission.
