PSLV C40 launch from Sriharikota

Today ISRO has successfully placed 31 satellites in 2 different orbits. The launch also cut off and reignited the 4th stage engine thrice demonstrating precision and control.
The payloads include 710 kg Cartosat-2 series satellite, 1 micro satellite,  1 nano satellite and 28 foreign satellites from 6 different countries.
One PSLV rocket costs around 120 crore INR to build and hence there is a significant cost saving by clubbing multiple satellites in one launch.
