The capacity in the first phase will be 2.5 lakh units a year. The forecast for the next financial year entails single-digit growth, no better than the current fiscal and exports are expected to be less than 1.27 lakh units earlier.

The company has been exporting about 40,000 completely built and completely knocked down units to Indonesia.
