Developments thus far:

Updates on GSLV Mk3 for OneWeb from PSLV C53 post-launch press conference (at 16:02): OneWeb has booked two launches. First launch planned in September-October of 2022, and next launch by January 2023.

Quote from: Peter B deSelding
@Eutelsat_SA @OneWeb combination 2: 3 @SpaceX launches (equivalent to 4 Soyuz OneWeb launches) & 2 Indian GSLV missions will complete Gen 1 deployment between Sept and March. OneWeb chairman Sunil Bharti thanked US & Indian govts for their influence in securing these launches. [July 26]

Does anyone know how ISRO managed to get two extra GSLVs for OneWeb on such short notice? Were they able to manufacture them, or did some other launch(es) have to be delayed because of OneWeb?
Bump ISRO payloads off of them to later launches.
Likely GSLV MkIII M2 and M3?

GSLV Mk3 roadmap. <snip>
Yes.

Director, SDSC SHAR, press meet [15 Aug 2022]:

Ruth Pritchard-Kelly, Senior Advisor for Regulatory & Space Policy, @OneWeb told us minutes ago that the Launch window for the #OneWeb next flight on @SpaceX #Falcon9 opens next week!

Also, she said that the following launch will also be ON FALCON 9 and not with ISRO. And the launch window for this second flight with @SpaceX opens in January.

So, the next two OneWeb Launches will be both with SpaceX on Falcon 9.

Next week launch window start is on Dec. 6. [Dec 1]

Re: LVM3 M3 - OneWeb F17 (x36) - SLP - NLT March 2023?
« Reply #9 on: 01/11/2023 09:31 am »
Cross-post; this launch hopefully still NLT March 2023?
[YouTube link]
Perhaps five Indian orbital launches before the end of the Indian fiscal year March 31, 2023:
Oceansat-3: end of November;
The 2nd OneWeb cluster launch: January or February, LVM3 M3;
The 2nd SSLV launch;
GSLV (MkII) NavIC satellite, apparently IRNSS-1J (1st of 5 2nd generation NavIC satellites ordered, which matches the circumstances of 1J);
Perhaps Aditya-L1.

Launch delayed. Next GSLV Mk2 launch (F12 or F14) should come before this one.
