News by PTI, BBC and Forbes support that India is the world's largest manufacturer and supplier of hydroxychloroquine drug.An article by PTI on 8 April 2020 quoting Donald Trump said that 29 million doses of hydroxychloroquine bought by the US to combat the coronavirus pandemic are from India and further reported that according to Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance (IPA) secretary-general Sudarshan Jain, India manufactures 70 per cent of the world's supply of hydroxychloroquine. India has a production capacity of 40 tonnes of hydroxychloroquine every month, implying 20 crore tablets of 200 mg each.

Forbes on 09 April 2020 quoting Sudarshan Jain said that domestic demand for hydroxychloroquine is 3 million tablets a month, but we have the capacity to produce 150 million to 200 million tablets a month and he also adds that it is difficult to predict the demand in future as there is no information that how many will be affected due to COVID-19.

BBC states that India is the world's largest manufacturer of hydroxychloroquine and the Indian government lifted the ban on the export of this drug.
