Funding will be done through internal sources. The Noida unit has a current capacity of churning out 100,000 units a month. This unit was set up at an investment of Rs 100-150 crore. The company aims to increase the capacity to 15 lakh units per month by the end of the current fiscal. As of May 2015, the company sells around 6 lakh smart phone out of around 18 lakh mobile phones it sells in a month. A major chunk of these phones are imported from China.
