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 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.

Launch is targeted for May.


--- Quote ---The 5,725-kg satellite, which will carry 40 transponders in the Ku-band and Kaband frequencies, is capable of “providing high bandwidth connectivity” with up to 14 gigabit per second (gbps) data transfer speed. “We will launch Gsat-11 from the European spaceport as it’s a fivetonne satellite. Around the same time in May, Isro will launch Gsat-29 through our GSLV Mk III rocket from Sriharikota. We also plan to launch Gsat-20 from India by next year,” the Isro chief said.
