Payload has been changed to GSAT-29 as mentioned on the official mission page: https://www.isro.gov.in/gslv-mkiii-d2-gsat-29-mission

Can a mod update the thread title to GSAT-29 instead of GSAT-20?

ISRO Chairman confirms the launch of GSLV MK-III in 2018 with the heaviest ever payload of nearly 4 tonne

Quote
Meanwhile, ISRO chairman AS Kiran Kumar said the space agency is facing the busiest year ahead with a cluster of launches lined up, which include Chandrayaan-2 in March. ISRO also plans to launch the second flight of GSLV MkIII, carrying the heaviest payload ever. The last successful GSLV MkIII launch was carried out on June 5, carrying a 3.2 tonne GSAT-19 communication satellite.

"This time, we are looking to launch a communication satellite of GSAT series which will be close to the 4-tonne class. It will carry new versions of optical communication and high frequency Q&V band." he said.
