But ISRO plans to use PSLVs regularly...evident from the fact that it has asked government funding for launches upto PSLV C24...which it got.
When was this funding approved?

A nanosatellite called Jugnu will be launched by PSLV in September or December. I'd assume this is on the RISAT launch, but I don't know.

Oceansat will be ready in two months according to this article
According to the Chairman of ISRO there will be no more than 3 launches until the end of 2009:
-Oceansat-2 NET mid-July with PSLV
- [GSAT-4/TAUVEX] "in the next 3 months" (i.e. August to October?) with GSLV
- [Resourcesat-2] with PSLV "towards the end of the year" (i.e. December 2009?)

GSAT-4+TAUVEX IN 3 MONTHS....POSSIBLE...
OCEANSAT-2 ACCORDING TO BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE IS PLANNED FOR END JUNE(JUNE 20s TO BE EXACT)...

ISRO IS HAVING 3 VEHICLES ALONG WITH SATS READY...AND TO SAY EVEN BEFORE MID OF A YEAR...THAT THEY WILL LAUNCH ONLY 3 MORE IS PRE-MATURE.

IF U LOOK CAREFULLY...THE ARTICLE I GAVE AND THE ARTICLE U PUT POINT TO THE SAME LECTURE GIVEN BY ISRO CHIEF....AND HE WAS REFERRING TO UPCOMING LAUNCHES WITHIN THE NEXT THREE MONTHS.

IF ALL GOES WELL I EXPECT ISRO TO LAUNCH 3 PSLVs(C14,C15,C13) AND 1 GSLV (D3) BY THE END OF YEAR...AND ONE MORE PSLV BY THE END OF THIS FINANCIAL YEAR(APRIL 2010).

IRNSS in 2009 is really strange considering...

1. PSLV-HP has to be made first. No ground tests reported.

2. The launch log is already full.

3. But a launch in this financial year 2009-10 cannot be ruled out.

Can a xl config PSLV put a IRNSS sat....considering 1320kg and 250*25000 orbit???

The article says GAGAN is on G-SAT-4 is this true????

PSLV-XL had put the Chandrayaan-1 which weighed 1,380 kg into a 255 X 24,000 km orbit. So I think it should be able to put the 1,370 kg IRNSS into a 250 X 24,000 orbit. I am pretty sure XL can do it as it had put Chandrayaan-1 into an almost identical orbit.

Yes, I expect them to use xl version for IRNSS.
