This happened after successfully completing the last of the three orbit-raising manoeuvres commanded from Indian Space Research Organisation's (ISRO) Master Control Facility (MCF) at Hassan, the ISRO said in a statement.
Later in the day, the communication antennae of GSAT-7, including the UHF Helix antenna, were deployed successfully.
Following this, the GSAT-7 was put in its final orbital configuration, stabilised on its three-axis by the momentum wheels.
The GSAT-7 satellite would reach its assigned orbital slot of 74 degree east longitude in the Geostationary Orbit within the next 10 days, the ISRO said.
On Sept 14, the communication transponders in UHF, S, C and Ku bands are planned to be switched on.
