For the 2019-20 timeline, 11 out of the total targeted missions have been completed.

India’s PM Narendra Modi had increased the annual budget of the space program by 3%, and this development is taking place also partly due to the increase in budget. The ISRO scientists’ relentless efforts gave India a prominent place among the other world space agencies.
