ISRO Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR launch facilities - vehicle assembly and launch pads:

MST: Mobile Service Tower
FLP: First Launch Pad
PIF: PSLV Integration Facility
VAB: Vehicle Assembly Building
SVAB: Second Vehicle Assembly Building
SSAB: Solid Stage Assembly Building

SDSC SHAR can integrate up to 4 LVs at a time (3 full, and 1 partial):
1) PSLV/SSLV integration at FLP MST.
2) PSLV partial integration at PIF. Only first and second stages can be integrated here, and it's moved to FLP for further stacking.
3) PSLV/GSLV Mk2/LVM3 integration at VAB for SLP.
4) PSLV/GSLV Mk2/LVM3 integration at SVAB for SLP.

And, SSAB is used for preparing solid stages of all ISRO LVs.
