"The rocket launch to carry Cartosat and other satellites, including 28 from the US and five other countries, will take place on January 12 at 9.30 AM," ISRO Public Relations Director Devi Prasad Karnik told news agency IANS.
"There is no delay in the schedule as the earlier stated launch date of January 10 was merely tentative," stated Mr Karnik.
The rocket launch would take place from ISRO's spaceport located at Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh.
The mission's payload will also include one nano and one micro satellite from India, besides Cartosat-2.
As an observational satellite, Cartosat will beam high-quality images for cartographic, urban and rural applications, coastal land use and regulation and utility management like road network monitoring.
