The document lays the road map to "transform India into a $300 billion electronics manufacturing powerhouse over the next 5 years, from the current US$75 billion. This will make electronics goods among India's 2-3 top ranking exports by 2026".

As per the vision document, the electronics goods exports are expected to increase from the projected $15 billion in 2021-22 to $120 billion by 2026.
