yes.
2 X SCE-200 (Clustered) --> SC400 Stage
HLV is 2 X SCE-200 (Clustered) --> SC200 Stage

HLV-HSP is 4 X SCE-200 (Clustered) --> SC400 Stage

Mr. S. Somnath, the director of VSSC has said that the Semi Cryo Engine is ready for trial.

Mr. Somanath said that, eventually, ISRO will phase out Vikas by replacing it first in Mk-III with a cleaner and safer semi-cryogenic engine. The semi-cryo engine is ready for trial; its stage has just been approved. "I cannot predict when it [the replacement] can happen," he said.

Hmm, I wonder if that means the SCE-200 will also replace the Vikas engine on PSLV.

With SCE-200 being a new engine, could ISRO have used 3D printing for any of its components? or Are they already doing it? Does anybody know?

When is the hotfire tests of the SCE-200 expected? Anybody has any inside info?

If the SCE-200 engine does replace the Vikas 2B engine on the PSLV second stage, it would take a very long time to modify the fuel and oxidizer tanks (as well as the plumbing needed to hook up the new engine) in order for them to store kerosene and liquid oxygen.
Because the Falcon Heavy Test Flight was successful, it has inspired thousands of people to consider changing the future of space travel.
