Moreover, PSLV-C54 is on the primary payload onboard which will be separated in Orbit-1.
The statement of ISRO reads, “Subsequently, Orbit change is planned by using two Orbit ChangeThrusters (OCTs) introduced in the Propulsion Bay Ring of the PSLV-C54 Vehicle. The Passenger Payloads (PPLs) will be separated in Orbit-2.”
