"The launch of the 100th satellite by (the ISRO) signifies both its glorious achievements and also the bright future of India's space programme", Mr Modi said on Twitter.

Modi´s government has been promoting a domestic space programme as a demonstration of low-priced technology and last February launched 104 satellites in a single mission, a lot of them for foreign customers.

The Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) has successfully launched its 100th satellite today from Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota. The total weight of the liftoff was reportedly about 1323 kilograms. "This success in the New Year will bring benefits of the country's rapid strides in space technology to our citizens, farmers, fishermen etc".

The 28 satellites from other countries were launched as a part of a commercial arrangement made between India's space agency and Antrix Corporation Ltd.

India will use its latest satellites for better border surveillance and to obtain high-resolution images of the earth.

The flight on Friday is the first since a rare mission failure on August 31 past year when a PSLV rocket did not release a protective heat shield that cocoons a rocket's satellite payloads from the high temperatures during the journey into space.

Ujiri also noted he doesn't think Trump's reported remarks are "fair, and I don't think it's what inspiring leadership can be". Durbin (D-Ill.), who was present at the meeting, said the president used the word.

India's space program is reportedly one of the most cost-effective in the world.

India's space agency has steadily increased its satellite count and even taken to launching foreign satellites. "It is gratifying that PSLV-C40 was successfully launched after the last event of PSLV-C39 marginally went out in the midst due to non-separation of the heat shield that failed to release the satellite in orbit". Further satellites Cartosat-2D and 2E were launched in February and June of 2017 as ISRO began to increase the size of the constellation.

During the last PSLV launch we had problems, today what has happened proves that the problem was properly addressed and rectified.
