What's the source for the delay from the 25th of May to "June"?

I am one of the students involved in one of the QB 50 satellites (COMPASS 2 to be precise) and right now we have no information on the current launch date from any official side, that's why I am asking...


Here's a hint:
Quote
LPSC director S Somnath had earlier said that the GSLV-Mk III is set to launch the communication satellite GSAT-19 by May end and then Earth observation satellite Cartosat-2E will be launched via PSLV-C38 by June first week.

I think this source is outdated.

Very recently we had PSLV on May 25 and LVM 3 on June 5, which is exactly the opposite of what is said in this quote.

That article is dated 11 May. The author of the article is clear that the next mission is GSLV Mk.III in May.

"Now, the team of scientists and engineers are focussed on the next mission - GSLV-MK III, boosted with fully indigenous cryogenic engine. The GSLV-Mk III will launch the communication satellite GSAT-19 in May."

However, the source is

"LPSC director S Somnath had earlier said that the GSLV-Mk III is set to launch the communication satellite GSAT-19 by May end and then Earth observation satellite Cartosat-2E will be launched via PSLV-C38 by June first week. "

It could be the author got the dates mixed up.

A part of the nanosatellites are ISL19: isilaunch19 mission patch payloads
ISL19 involves 23 cubesats:
8x LEMUR (3U)
8x QB-50 (see image, blank = 2U)
3x Diamond SSG (3U)
Aalto-1 (3U)
ROBUSTA-1B (1U)
skCUBE (1U)
SUCHAI (1U)

Aalto-1, ROBUSTA-1B; SKCUBE; Suchai were originally part of ISL09 (Formosat-5 + Sherpa)

Hi,

A very warm welcome.
There has been no media reports suggesting delays due to launch vehicle or satellite.

My sources at sriharikota suggest that ISRO is simply prioritizing LVM3-D1 launch. Again this is not an official statement.

ISRO may also be waiting on some other commercial payloads other than those part of ISIL.
