This is the 71st launch vehicle mission for Sriharikota. Notably, tor the first time, the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) invited common people to view the launch of the satellite.

After PSLV-C45 launched it successfully injected EMISAT into sun-synchronous polar orbit. Now 28 nano customer satellites will be placed into their designated orbit.

This launch comes six days after India test-fired an anti-satellite (ASAT) missile in the Mission Shakti operation. The countdown for the launch on the PSLV, in its 47th flight, began at 6:27 am on Sunday, ISRO said.

"The immediate mission what we are targeting is the PSLV C-45. This mission is special in the sense, for the first time PSLV will have a three-orbit mission in a single flight," said ISRO chairman K Sivan
