ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) recently launched a milestone flight with its Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV- C40). The satellite mission was launched on January 12, 2018, at 09:29 hours. Read more details about the mission here.

The Press Trust of India said that the PSLV carried a total of 31 micro and nano-satellites. 28 among these satellites were launched as a part of a commercial arrangement between Antrix Corporation Limited and the countries of Canada, Finland, France, Republic of Korea, UK and USA. Antrix is a Government of India company under Department of Space (DOS).
