As the Commission is aware, BlackSky is under a tight timetable to ship its
Global-1 satellite on July 15, 2018, for a September launch.

Global-1 is on a PSLV flight.

 If the next PSLV flight is in September, does that mean the other scheduled launches- GSLV Mark 2 with GSAT-7A, GSLV Mark 3 with GSAT-29, PSLV with an IRNSS and the Chandrayaan launch, will also be pushed back?  Or more likely, the Chandrayaan mission will go as planned in October, but the other 2-3 will be delayed?

Talking to TOI, Isro chairman K Sivan said here, “Of various missions lined up this year, the first launch will be of a PSLV rocket in September that will solely be for commercial  purpose. Two UK satellites weighing 450 kg each will be the  main payload. UK will use these satellites for earth observation. There will not be any Indian satellite.”
SSTL-S1 and NovaSar-S?

Spaceflight Industries will send Fleet Space Technologies’ 10-kilogram Centauri 1 nanosatellite into orbit on an ISRO/Antrix Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV) sometime in 2018.

According to Sivan, in September ISRO will fly a PSLV rocket with two foreign satellites, earning revenue for the country. In October, another PSLV rocket will fly with an Indian remote sensing satellite and several foreign satellites. October will also see India’s heaviest rocket 640-ton GSLV Mk III flying up with GSAT-29 with Ka x Ku multi-beam and optical communication payloads. The mission targets Village Resource Centres (VRC) in rural areas to bridge the digital divide.

In November, ISRO will fly a GSLV Mk II rocket to put into orbit GSAT-7A, to be used by the Indian Air Force (IAF). Earlier, ISRO had launched GSAT-7 or Rukmini satellite for the Indian Navy.

Queried about the 5.8-ton GSAT-11, a communication satellite that was recalled from French Guiana this April, Sivan said: “We expect the satellite to be launched before the end of this year. Discussions with Arianespace are on regarding the time and date of the satellite launch.”

An American cubesat launching on PSLV around December (arranged through Spaceflight):
Analytical Space "Meshbed" 3U CubeSat (0585-EX-CN-2018)
Quote
The overall goal of the Meshbed mission, is to test an experimental phased array
communication antenna, model named FUSE.

The satellite will be launched as a secondary payload aboard a Polar Satellite Launch
Vehicle (PSLV) operated by the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), from
Sriharikota, India in December 2018, and deployed upon the rocket reaching orbit. It will
be deployed from the rocket in a 550 km circular orbit, on an inclination from the equator
of 97.6 degrees.

^^^

So does this mean that there are going to be 3 PSLV launches before the end of the year? The purely commercial one in September, another PSLV with an Indian remote sensing satellite and a few foreign ones,  and finally the December mission with an American "Meshbed" satellite. 

Or are all these tentative and mixed up, or two of them anyway. The December launch with the US satellite is referring to the same mission as the October one with an Indian Cartosat  etc., and the month is still up in the air. Anyone can clarify?

CHENNAI: To keep pace with the rising demands of the country, Indian Space Research Organisation (Isro) will increase its satellite launches to at least 12 a year, said  Vikram Sarabhai Space Centre (VSSC) director S Somanath.
"We are also planning to build high data communication satellites (at least 100 Gigabyte per second) and landing on the moon by Chandrayan II by next year," he told reporters after speaking at Sathyabama University's 27th convocation programme on Sunday.

Though such an ambitious plan is desirable by everyone who follows Indian Space Program closely, yet it is rather implausible at the current scenario owing to the two recent mishaps, until the problem pertaining to the quality control in the manufacturing of satellite components are sorted out. ISRO has to tread cautiously before the quality control issue involving the private sector is fixed once for all, by meticulously checking every component manufactured by the growing number of private companies, before the assembly of the satellites.

By the middle of next year, 2019 we want to launch GSAT 20 communication satellite.
...
Besides this we are also working on a small launcher -- a small innovative launch vehicle which could be put in service by the middle of next year. This will exclusively cater to launching of small satellites as primary payload.

ISRO will launch 50 satellites in next three years

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) will launch 50 satellites in the next three years to meet the growing demand for space applications in India.

Chairman of ISRO Dr K Sivan told this to reporters in Bengaluru at the ISRO headquarters after the inauguration of bust of Dr Vikram Sarabhai, the first Chairman of  ISRO whose 99th birth anniversary is being celebrated today.

Dr. Sivan said, two launches will be planned every month from February next year, which he said, will be a record in the history of space programme. The Chairman also said, Chandrayaan II mission to moon with a lander is planned in January next year. ISRO will also launch two demonstration flights of Small Satellite Launch Vehicle in mid of next year.

Chandrayaan-2 to be launched in January-March window in 2019
Quote
"Next year from February to December we plan to have 22 missions with almost two missions per month, which is a very important activity. This tight schedule of programmes we are doing for the first time.

We have set a target.We may not be able achieve but we are targeting it. So many missions in a year is a huge target for the first time in the history of ISRO," Sivan said.
The remaining months of 2018 would also be very hectic for ISRO as it plans to launch at least two missions every month, he said.

"Our next mission is PSLV C42, which will launch NOVASAT and S1-4. These two satellites are commercial satellites from the U.K.It is a commercial mission and is planned in September. Subsequently we have two missions each month," the ISRO chief said.

In October this year ISRO would launch GSAT29 for the Digital India programme and hyper spectrum imaging satellites along with 30 commercial satellites, Sivan said.

The following month GSAT-7A will be launched, while in December there would be two missions,GSLV-F11 launching AMISAT and GSAT-31, a replacement for INSAT 4CR, whose life will get over by January, he said.

ISRO would have two missions Chandrayan-2 by GSLV Mark 3 and the PSLV P45 launching RA-SAT 2B next year.
"AMISAT" is presumably EMIsat and "RA-SAT 2B" presumably RISAT-2B

   Whoa, if I read this correctly, the GSLV F-11( and this is the first time we're hearing of it, I'm sure)  will launch two satellites, into a geosynchronous orbit. So it will be ISRO's first 'multi-launch' involving the GSLV. Excellent.

Sorry, but you're wrong. GSat 31 is being launched by Arianespace from French Guiana.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.
