India has created history by successfully launching 104 satellites on a single mission, overtaking the previous record of 37 satellites launched by Russia in 2014, BBC reports.
All but three of the satellites are from foreign countries, most of them from the United States.
The launch took place from Sriharikota space centre in south India.
Observers say it is a sign that India is emerging as a major player in the multi-billion dollar space market.
"This is a great moment for each and every one of us. Today we have created history," project director B Jayakumar was quoted as saying by the Reuters news agency.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi was among the first to congratulate the scientists tweeting, "This remarkable feat by @isro is yet another proud moment for our space scientific community and the nation. India salutes our scientists."
