The launch vehicle will inject the satellite into an elliptical transfer orbit (Sub-GTO) of 284 km perigee and 21,000 km apogee. Subsequently, the liquid apogee motor of the satellite will be
 used to raise both apogee and perigee of the Satellite to place it in a circular orbit of 36,000 km altitude.

 All the four stages of the launch vehicle have been fully assembled at the Vehicle Assembly Building at Shriharikota. Isro’s schedule of the launch is here below:

On 3 July, Isro plans to integrate the satellite with the launch vehicle at the vehicle assembly building, after clearance by the Launch authorisation board.

On 10 July, PSLV-C17 Vehicle (with the GSAT-12 Satellite onboard) is planned to be moved from the Vehicle Assembly Building to the Second Launch Pad.

On 13 July, the 52.5 hour Countdown for the launch is expected to commence after launch rehearsals, clearance from Mission Readiness Review Teams and Launch Authorisation Board.
