This would be the first GSLV MK-2 to feature the uprated C-15 upper stage. Launch is set for January.

ISRO is to launch GSAT-6A right after the Cartosat Mission is launched by PSLV C40, though the exact month is not known, most probably it is presumed to be launched in February.

Source : Isro will resume sat launches only from first week of 2018
