The project was first announced by Prime Minster Narendra Modi in his Independence Day speech this year. As part of the programme, two unmanned flights and one manned flight will be undertaken
.
The first human space flight demonstration is targeted to be completed within 40 months of the sanction date. Prior to this, two unmanned flights in full complement will be carried out to gain confidence, the government said.

The Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) has developed the launch vehicle GSLV MK-III, which has the necessary payload capability to launch a three-member crew module in low earth orbit.

The answer to the question can be derived from the last sentence of the second-last paragraph ‘Prior to this, two unmanned flights in full complement will be carried out to gain confidence…’.
 So, the purpose served by the two unmanned flights prior to the flight carrying humans is for the ISRO to be confident prior to sending humans into space.
