12 satellites from US are from PlanetiQ
This quote from the video does not say anything, on which launches the PlanetiQ satellites are. It is just about the order to launch 12 PlanetiQ satellites.

SRO Bags Deal To Launch 68 Foreign Satellites, 12 Of Them From US
3:38 India secured deals to launch 68 overseas satellites, including a dozen from the US, a top official said on Tuesday.
“We got fresh orders to launch 68 satellites from various countries, including 12 from PlanetiQ, a US based weather forecasting satellite firm,” said Rakesh Sasibhushan, Chairman and Managing Director of Antrix Corporation, the commercial arm of the Indian space agency.

PSLV-C 37 scheduled for launch on January 27
http://www.thehindu.com/sci-tech/science/PSLV-C-37-scheduled-for-launch-on-January-27/article16895637.ece
This 'might' mean a change in the launch date for GSLV-III, else the two launches would have to happen within barely a week's gap.

ISRO's fastest turnaround to date was just under 18 days, between a GSLV Mk.II from SLP on 8 September 2016 and a PSLV-G from FLP on 26 September.

The GSLV Mk.III will launch from SLP, so assuming the PSLV goes from FLP it is probably feasible. Especially if the GSLV has to be stacked early to allow for additional testing as it is the first all-up launch.

Funny, because SpaceX FormoSat-5/Sherpa flight is delayed over a year, they only break the US record of max number of payloads on one launch, not the global record. When this PSLV launch is successful, 91 payloads on one launch will not even break a world record.
This sound's like Cartosat-2D, INS-1A and INS-1B will launch along with about 25 ISIS Quadpack's that contain 100 cubesat's. I wonder how these Quadpacks are mounted onto the PSLV.
Could these additional payloads come from the QB-50 project?  Is this ISL-17?

I couldn't find anything on the QB50 website. Some of the requirements documents show PSLV as a possible launch vehicle. Eight cubesats are scheduled to use Dnepr, so some or all of those might end up on PSLV. Out of the 40 QB50 satellites scheduled to be deployed from ISS, only 31 made it to the launch pad in time for OA-7 for launch on 16 March. Some of these might end up on a latter PSLV flight.

ISIS Space has posted an article celebrating their 11year anniversary.
I think it's a interesting article to read. ISLaunch has five launches masifested this year.
ISL17 will launch on a PSLV in Februari 2017, so it's very likely ISL17 is part of the PSLV (XL) C37 manifest.
ISL19 will launch on a PSLV in Q2 2017, most likely C38 or C39.

I also expect, a part of the cubesat manifest comes form Spaceflight Industries. (i.a. Planet: 56x  Flock 2C)

Of the 103 satellites that ISRO's workhorse PSLV-C37 is expected to carry, 100 are foreign. 
 
 "They are all actually a constellation, they are getting into a constellation of satellites providing observation of earth," Kumar said in response to a query on the sidelines of Karnataka ICT Summit 2017. 
 
  The three Indian satellites are Cartosat-2 series, weighing 730 kg as primary payload, INS-IA and INS-1B, weighing 30 kg.

Tweet from ISILaunch: https://twitter.com/ISILaunch/status/819524149551005696
And two earlier tweets about the about the Al-Farabi-1 payload. 1 | 2
Another thing we can conclude from the 2 tweet:
Is that the Quadpack decoreted with the name of the Estec open day coloring contest, will launch on plsv C37.

Edit3: Blog  ISIlaunch 17 page
Edit4: from blog: payloads: PEASSS (3U), DIDO-2 (2U), BGUSat (3U), Al-Farabi-1 (2U). And a number of commercial payloads to be introduced later.

Launch most probably in the first week of February

Assuming that is IST (+5:30 GMT), that would be 3:09 UTC.

As per the latest Eenadu report, launch is postponsed to 15th Feb due to a technical glitch.
Other details:
All the foreign satellites (100 sats) reached Chennai 4 days back and they were brought to Sriharikota under high security on Wednesday.

Thx

Not sure if it is relevant and correct, the speaker in the below video says 104 satellites (101 foreign) even though the heading is 103

Sky and Space Global's 3 Diamonds Smallsats Head Into Testing Phases


The construction of their 3 Diamonds as well as the Red, Green and Blue nanosatellites have been completed on schedule by Sky and Space Global Ltd. (ASX: SAS)—now underway is extensive software and hardware testing.

The 3 Diamonds nanosatellites recently completed the Assembly testing stage and have now proceeded to the Integration and Verification phase. The testing process these smallsats will undergo includes the full functional tests of all subsystems to ensure systems are functioning as required; testing of ground control and hotspot user device satellite interfaces; and the environmental testing of mechanical and thermal systems for launch approval.


The 3 Diamonds: Red, Green and Blue are also undergoing testing in phases.  The Red nanosatellite has already completed the entire process and has been designated as “Ready to Launch.”  Green and Blue are currently undergoing the Integration and Verification process, which is expected to be completeed within a week.  All nanosatellites are expected to be designated as “Ready for Launch” by mid-February 2017, as planned.
