Isro will resume sat launches only from first week of 2018

Quote
Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) will launch its latest remote sensing satellite of the Cartosat-2 series, along with 28 foreign satellites riding piggy-back, only in the first week of January, a top Isro official said.

Director of Thiruvananthapuram-based Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC), K Sivan clarified that there will be no launch this month and that launch services, which halted after the unsuccessful launch of navigation satellite IRNSS-1H on August 31, will "resume in the first week of the new year".

Quote
Rakesh Sasibhushan, CMD of Antrix (Isro's commercial arm), told TOI: "The January launch payload will comprise a combination of one Cartosat, 25 nano satellites and three micro-satellites. Finland is the new customer this time. The rest co-passengers are from existing foreign customers. Most of these small satellites are from the US."

Quote
The launch of Cartosat-2 by the PSLV C40 rocket is a follow-on mission of the Cartosat-2 series with the primary objective of providing high-resolution scene specific spot imageries. The satellite, which carries panchromatic and multi-spectral cameras, is capable of delivering high-resolution data.

According to local newspapers the launch campaign for PSLV-C40 only began around december 12th. It is very likely this launch will slip to late January/Early February given past PSLV campaign durations.
