Sivan said, "After the Cartosat mission, the subsequent launch will be of Gsat-6A that will be lifted off by a GSLV Mk II rocket".
The ISRO would launch the GSLV GSAT 6A in the last week of March. The ISRO had lined up a number of programmes to make India stronger in various aspects of development and services to the people. To a question, Mr. Sivan said the ISRO was working on improving the longevity of satellites.
Launch is set for 24th March. GS1 (1st stage) and GS2 (2nd stage) integration have been completed. Cryogenic upper stage has been shipped to launch site and GSAT-6A is fully assembled undergoing final stages of testing. Article (Telugu): http://andhrabhoomi.net/content/nation-6342

I have been hearing that uprated Cryogenic Engine will power the Upper stage as well as there have been reports of the Vikas 2 Engine having been uprated as well. When is GSLV MK-II supposed to reach its publicized payload capability of 2.5 ton ? In the last seventeen years, GSLV has gone through tortuous stages of development and launch failures when all over the world the space fairing nations continued to raise the payload of communication satellite launch vehicle by at least five to six times the capability of GSLV MK-II, making it losing the race.--- [ --- ]
