Mam ,Is there any sequence follwed by ISRO in naming satellites while launching them?
yes, communication Satellites were initially named as INSAT 1A, INSAT 1B etc, later they are following GSAT series. Remote sensing Satellites named as IRS series, Nano satellite as INS (ISRO nano satellite). but some satellites like Megha tropiques which is India- France satellite, these satellites do not follow the sequence.
