SSLV D3 planned for February 2023:

Quote
The space agency, in fact, is hoping to complete the second and third development flights during the 2022-23 fiscal, Mr. Somanath indicated. While the second mission is expected before December this year, the third is planned for February 2023, he said.

Launch campaigns on FLP and SLP can and do overlap.  A late November or December launch from SLP does not preclude a SSLV launch from FLP before the end of the year.

There is the question: How long does it take to set up the GSE (ground support equipment) for the differing launch vehicles using FLP?

What is the payload?  Is it still the BlackSky Global satellites stranded at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic?  XPoSat will launch on a PSLV.

Cross-posts
Four simultaneous launch campaigns:
SDSC SHAR facilities can be found here: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=56901.0

They can integrate up to 4 LVs at a time (3 full, and 1 partial):
1) PSLV/SSLV integration at FLP MST.
2) PSLV partial integration at PIF (PSLV Integration Facility). Only first and second stages can be integrated here, and it's moved to FLP for further stacking.
3) PSLV/GSLV Mk2/LVM3 integration at VAB for SLP.
4) PSLV/GSLV Mk2/LVM3 integration at SVAB for SLP.

They also have SSAB (Solid Stage Assembly Building) for preparing solid stages of all ISRO LVs.

SSLV D3:
An excerpt from Malayalam language interview with ISRO chairman on Asianet News dated 26 Aug 2023:
Quote from: Pradeep tweet
INSAT-3DS on the GSLV, XPoSAT on the PSLV, SSLV-D3 launch, commercial launch of PSLV, unmanned Gaganyaan launch on LVM3,are upcoming missions over the next few months. Will give you enough news items in the next few months.
[Aug 26]

XPoSat to PSLV:
https://www.reddit.com/r/ISRO/comments/125rfb4/parliamentary_qa_29_march_2023_queries_on/
Regarding payloads to be launched by ISRO in 2023:
XPoSat is one of the listed payloads, aboard SSLV D3.

NET September:
Seeking correction or confirmation:

Chandrayaan-3 : LVM3 M4 : SLP : 12 July

commercial launch : PSLV : FLP : July

1st Gaganyaan in-flight abort test : S200 stage : FLP : early? August

Aditya-L1 : PSLV-XL C56 : FLP : mid August

INSAT-3DS : GSLV MkII F14? : SLP : after Chandrayaan-3

On the other hand the XPoSat User Meet stream above has the LV as PSLV (1:08:35 mark). I'm not sure if there was a late change.

Cross-post from Times of India:

PSLV, GSLV Launch
He added that the space agency is targetting November-December for at least two more launches, one on its workhorse, the PSLV, and the other on the GSLV-Mk2.
“The PSLV will launch the Xposat and also have POEM (PSLV Orbital Experimental Module) carrying scientific and commercial payloads onboard. We’ll announce these features soon. The GSLV will launch the Insat-3DS satellite, which is almost ready. The vibration tests have begun today (Friday),” Somanath said.

No mention of a SSLV launch before year's end, (which requires FLP), so a delay into 2024.

It is puzzling that we haven't heard anything about an upcoming ISRO launch!  The SSLV D3 should have been launched in March, it is April now, and not a word about it. This should be the year of one launch per month. Maybe things will pick up shortly. At least we can expect an Agnibaan launch in the next few days.
