    “The capacity of the unit will be 30 million units and it should be operational in around two years. With demonetization, the market had undoubtedly slowed down but is getting back on track with the cash crunch situation easing. Sales declined 20% in the first two to three days, but with partial recovery, now the decline is 8-10%,” he added.
