27 Drug Parks and 13 Medical Devices Units Inaugurated

  • Dr. Mansukh Mandaviya, Union Minister for Chemicals & Fertilizers and Health & Family Welfare, inaugurated 27 Greenfield bulk drug park projects and 13 Greenfield manufacturing plants for medical devices under the PLI scheme. 
  • The PLI scheme was a result of discussions on India’s dependence on critical resources, supply chain risks, and the industry’s global competitiveness. 
  • The scheme aims to reduce India’s dependence on medicines, API, and medical devices, and to become a major exporter of these products. 
  • The PLI-I scheme identified 48 critical bulk drugs for local manufacturing, leading to the launch of the Rs. 15,000 Crore PLI-II scheme to increase cost competitiveness for medicines and medical products in the international market. 
  • The scheme aims to bring localisation and value addition to India’s pharma and MedTech industry and reduce over-dependence on critical resources from certain geographies. 
  • Under the PLI scheme, up to 1800 pharmaceutical products and formulations and 22 bulk drugs will be manufactured in India.
