India will not be changing the PSLV architecture in the near future. It is going in a different way. Small satellite launch vehicle for small payloads and the GSLV Mk 3 type and derivatives for heavy launch.So when SC200 comes we will be using that structure whch wil be part of the ULV series.

In all launches tge l9bbed height by the atmospheric burn is targetted higher. Gravity acts to speed up with loss of height and the next stage can kick off. This coasting time is commonly used by ISRO . PE being replaced by KE to our advantage.
