"The Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV-C40) deployed India's 710-kg Cartosat and 10-kg nano satellite and 100-kg micro-sat along with 28 foreign satellites into the Earth's orbit after a flawless lift-off from the launch pad", said outgoing Indian Space Research Organisation Chairman AS Kiran Kumar at the mission control facility, about 80km northeast of Chennai.

The satellites would be placed in their intended different orbits finally after manoeuvres from the space agency's Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan in Karnataka, about 180 km from Bengaluru.

The first stage of GSLV-MII is already assembled and the preparations are on for its launch.
