2 other satellites are INSPIREsat-1 and INS-2TD.

Quote
According to ISRO, the rocket will also carry two small satellites as co-passengers. They include one student satellite (INSPIREsat-1) from Indian Institute of Space Science & Technology (IIST) in association with the Laboratory of Atmospheric & Space Physics at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a technology demonstrator satellite (INS-2TD) from ISRO, which is a precursor to India-Bhutan Joint Satellite (INS-2B).

Congratulations ISRO on another successful launch of PSLV!

  Very uplifting, encouraging achievement, particularly in the light of the  struggles with Covid, and the huge setback of the GISAT-1 mission last August.
