Mobile phones manufacture in India goes up big-time

"Before 2014, there were just two mobile phone manufacturing factories in the country. Today approximately 125 factories are making mobile phones in the country, and out of those 125, many are in Noida," Prime Minister Narendra Modi today claimed at a public rally.  

It's not just the number of factories but also the production of mobile phones that has "picked up dramatically since 2014".  

About 58 million mobile phones were being manufactured in India per annum in 2014.  In 2017-18, the figure was 225 million.
