GISAT-1 is now expected to launch on April 1, 2020
The Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) has asked staff to stay home from Monday onwards in view of the COVID-19 situation.
In this flight, a 4 metre diameter Ogive shaped payload fairing (OPLF) is being flown for the first timein GSLV to accommodate a larger spacecraft.
Efforts are being made to complete the PSLV C49 experiment by December this year. In addition, the PSLV C50 and the GSLV F10, which was postponed to the last minute on March 5 this year, is scheduled to be completed by the end of March 2021.
Next launch is PSLV C50 with "CMS 01" followed by first SSLV with "EOS 02" and GSLV F10 with "EOS 03".End of webcast.
The GSLV carrying GISAT-1 is expected to fly after PSLV C50.
The GSLV rocket was dismantled after the [March 5, 2020] launch was called off, and is being refurbished. The rocket's cryogenic engine has been brought down and it is being readied again.

Ongoing SSLV preparations take the FLP out of play for other launches. Both launches, of Amazonia and GISAT-1, will apparently stage from the SLP.The open question is: which is first, and which follows?
