Do we know what satellite is a.k.a. TDS-01?

From the reddit post:
Quote
Two official communiqué from Institute of Plasma Research, Gandhinagar and CSIR-CEERI, Pilani suggest PSLV-C54 would carry Technology Demonstration Satellite 01 (TDS-01) which is supposed to host demonstrators for Electric Propulsion system, indigenous atomic clock and Travelling Wave Tube Amplifier (TWTA).

The SANA registration lists the operating location as "Near Earth," with expected launch date of March 29.

Launch order currently is:
C53 end of March or 1st week of April
SSLV D1 April

Does this launch immediately follow D1?  Or is it shuffled later into 2022?

Is this the commercial mission referred to in a)?

Might this launch also be a commercial rideshare mission?  My bold.
