There are indications that C45 will not launch before mid March. This would continue the scheme of at least 6-7 weeks between PSLV launches. So Cartosat-3 looks rather like NET April than NET March.

According to Times of India (Dec 2018), it will launch with NEMO-AM. Cartosat-3 is a remote sensing satellite, and NEMO-AM an eath observation (Aerosol Monitoring) sat.

The next PSLV flight, C45, is scheduled to launch on April 1 UTC from the SLP.

The previous launch from the FLP was PSLV C44, on January 24.  It's been a little over two months now since then.

Is there any sign of a launch campaign in progress at the FLP, for the PSLV C46 launch?

From the EMISAT end of launch speech, this is now on C47 and will be after RISAT 2BR1 on C46 in the middle of May. So this makes this launch NET May.

Regarding the scheduling of this upcoming launch:

Deducing from the launch threads here for Cartosat-2C, 2E, and 2F, there should be a "flag-off" notice or notices for Cartosat-3, yes?

Also, would not UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory release news of a successful delivery of NEMO-AM?

As reported in the RISAT 2B speech by the ISRO Chairman, this launch is now after Chandrayan 2 which has a window from 9 to 16 July. Thus this launch is now NET July.

 And I'm still trying to be absolutely certain what "NET" means :). Before, after, during, not before..?
 Interesting that they changed the launch date of Cartosat-3. It seemed pretty certain it was a June launch, before Chandrayaan.  There would be separate teams working on these missions, so it can't be a personnel issue.

Cross-post:
With the final preparations at the SLP for the launch of Chandrayaan-2, is there any sign of activity at the FLP?
It has been two months since the last launch from the FLP, PSLV-CA C46.

Is there a PSLV being assembled on the FLP?

If so, could it be for this launch?  Or another PSLV payload?

FLP is bring upgraded and these works may be slowing the manifest down a bit. SVAB coming online for SLP and TLP beginning soon will help to accelerate launches. SSLV and other experimental launches from FLP and Indian PM wanting a Spaceport in his home state has also created unrelated issues.

 So it looks like no launches in the month of August. That's somewhat disappointing- unless they're planning a SSLV in August, or a RLV-TD.

The overall goal of the Meshbed mission is to test the FUSE experimental phased array

The satellite will be launched as a secondary payload aboard a Polar Satellite Launch
Vehicle (PSLV) operated by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), from
Sriharikota, India NET October 15, 2019, and deployed upon the rocket reaching orbit. It
will be deployed from the rocket in a 505 km circular orbit, on an inclination from the

ISRO would take up Cartosat-3, a high-resolution earth observation satellite, in October. Within a week of it it would launch RISAT-2BR1.

Future programmes will go as planned. Starting with the Cartosat-3 launch by the end of October, followed by RISAT-2BR1 within a week of the Cartosat launch. Isro is also working seriously on the flagship Gangayaan programme. By the end of 2020, the first unmanned flight will be launched.

And, will this launch be from the SLP?

 Could the addition of 12 satellites to the main one( Cartosat-3) be the major reason for the delay. Maybe some of them won't arrive by the end of October?

Presser:

Spaceflight Announces Next Three Rideshare Missions on ISRO’s PSLV, Slated Through the End of 2019

The rideshare service provider will launch 14 customer satellites from four different organizations on the next three launches

SEATTLE – Oct. 15, 2019 – Spaceflight, the leading satellite rideshare and mission management provider, today announced it will launch 14 more spacecraft from India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) this year. Payloads will launch on PSLV’s C47, C48 and C49 missions, scheduled to launch in November and December 2019 from India’s Satish Dhawan Space Center. Customers aboard the missions include Analytical Space, Spire, iQPS and Kleos Space.

Analytical Space Inc.’s (ASI) second technical demonstration spacecraft, dubbed Meshbed, will be launching on PSLV C47 in November. ASI’s mission is an on-orbit demonstration intended to test technology that will enable users on Earth to gain faster access to satellite data. The spacecraft features a patented antenna from MITRE that could help enable faster access to space-based data, as well as government missions including tactical communications and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance.

The launch window/moment will be within the NOTAM-effective time of day, 03:30 to 05:30 UTC, November 10 through December 9.

The target orbit for Cartosat-3 is a SSO, 505 km circular orbit, inclination 97.4 degrees.

Is it possible to deduce the launch time of day?

Re: NEMO-AM
Does the PS4 fourth stage have enough performance left after Cartosat-3 separation to change orbit from 505 km circular, inclination 97.4 deg; to 650 km circular, inclination 97.64 deg?

And deliver NEMO-AM into its designated SSO with the proper LTDN?
***

EDIT/ADD: https://www.isro.gov.in/launcher/pslv-c47-cartosat-3-mission
Cartosat-3 orbit 509 km circular, 97.5 deg.  Launch 0358 Nov 25 UTC.
13 nanosatellites; no mention of NEMO-AM.

Also, no mention of an imminent launch for NEMO-AM from UTIAS Space Flight Laboratory.

Fueling has begun of the second stage.

Fueling has begun! The @ISRO PSLV-XL rocket's second stage is being fueled with cryogenic propellant for tonight's launch of #Cartosat3 and #NEMOAM.

NEMO-AM wasn't in the list of payloads in the press kit. Is there a source confirming this satellite is on board?

Gunter points out I missed  Dove 2257 from the list.

It seems clear that NEMO-AM is NOT on the flight, despite some people still being confused about this

 There's usually something different about each of these missions, so for this one..I think I got it, offhand :), it's the combination of the largest main satellite with many co-passengers.  There was a heavier satellite, RISAT-1( 1858kg) launched in 2012, but there were no other satellites on board.   The other Cartosats, Oceansats et al, may have had more satellites travelling with them, but the main satellites themselves were lighter.

This particular satellite on PSLV C-47, Cartosat-3, weighs in at 1625kg.  All the best for a flawless, successful mission!

Thank you, Steven, for the launch coverage!

Congratulations to the launch campaign teams!

Has anyone estimated the aperture and focal length of Cartosat-3's telescope?
