ISRO has achieved much success in the past following this mission. The latest project, EOS-01, is an earth observation satellite designed to provide data for an application for agriculture, forestry, and disaster management support. The NewSpace India Limited (NSIL) is a commercial arm of the Indian Space Research Organisation looking forward to launching the other nine customer satellites. Out of nine satellites, 1 is from Lithuania, 4 is from Luxembourg, and the other 4 is from the USA. Below is the full details of the name of the satellites and the mission objective of the satellites:

According to ISRO, chairman K.Sivan said that all the previous missions included 10 launches of satellites, were heavily disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the first launch by the Indian Space Research Organization since the COVID-19 lockdown came into force, which took place in March.
In the meantime, following the rules and regulations of the COVID-19 pandemic, media personnel’s gathering is still restricted at the Satish Dhawan Space Centre (SDSC) SHAR, and the launch viewing gallery will remain closed during this launch. However, to view the satellite launch, citizens can watch the live telecast on ISRO’s website, Facebook, Youtube, and Twitter channels.
We wish All the Best to the Indian Space Research and Organization for the launch of PSLV-C49 for its success!
