The video conference will take place after inauguration of the much-awaited South Asia Satellite.
The Indian PM made the announcement about South Asian Satellite during the Saarc Summit in Kathmandu in November, 2014, calling it a "gift to India's neighbours".
However, its name was altered South Asia Satellite because Pakistan did not want to be a part of it.
Bangladesh, Nepal, Bhutan and Sri Lanka have agreed to join the Rs 450-crore South Asian satellite project.
According to ISRO officials, there is a potential for each participating country to use a dedicated transponder with a capacity of 36 to 54 Mhz for its own internal use.
The 2230-kg satellite has already been built with three years of efforts.
