The second most populous country in the world has emerged as a major vaccine producer in recent years, focusing efforts on geographical regions where vaccines are not funded by the UN or charitable organisations
Washington: India’s vaccine production sector is likely to expand dramatically to an estimated size of $871 million by 2016 from $350 million in 2011, reports PTI quoting a report.
The report said it anticipates a sizeable shift in the industry landscape, as the most promising future growth opportunities for the production and sale of vaccines come from emerging economies such as India and China.
Concerns regarding the emergence of bio-terrorism and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), in addition to the search for cancer vaccines, are the drivers for the fast expansion of the India's vaccine production sector, said the new report from pharmaceutical industry experts GBI Research.
The second most populous country in the world has emerged as a major vaccine producer in recent years, focusing efforts on geographical regions where vaccines are not funded by the UN or charitable organisations, it said.
As a result, exports constituted 65% of the Indian vaccines market last year, GBI Research said.
The NCP legislature party has already appealed to Ajit Pawar to withdraw his resignation, sent to the state chief minister on Tuesday, after an expose in a section of the media on alleged irregularities in the irrigation department
Mumbai: The crisis in Maharashtra government after deputy chief minister Ajit Pawar’s resignation is expected to draw to a close with the intervention of Union agriculture minister and NCP (Nationalist Congress Party) president Sharad Pawar today, reports PTI.
Mr Pawar will participate in the NCP legislature party meeting which be held at Vidhan Bhavan here at 4.00pm.
The NCP legislature party has already appealed to Ajit Pawar to withdraw his resignation, sent to chief minister Prithviraj Chavan on Tuesday, after an expose in a section of the media on alleged irregularities in the irrigation department during his tenure as minister.
The party has authorised Mr Pawar to take a final call on the matter.
After Ajit resigned, all the other 19 NCP ministers in the government had also handed over their resignation letters to state unit president Madhukar Pichad.
The resignation of MLAs was being seen as a show of strength by Ajit that he had the backing of the entire legislature party.
However, Ajit Pawar refuted speculation of a rift with his uncle (Sharad Pawar).
NCP suspects that the chief minister was ‘leaking’ information related to the irrigation department, a charge that has been denied by the Congress.
“In the age of RTI Act, nothing can remain under wraps,” Congress sources said.
There were reports of NCP activists burning Mr Chavan’s effigies and taking out demonstrations in some parts of the state. Congress took strong objection to this, following which Mr Pichad issued a statement asking his party activists to stop the protests.
“Ajit Pawar’s resignation is an internal matter of our party,” he said in the statement.
Meanwhile, Congress is standing firmly behind Mr Chavan. The party said decision on Ajit Pawar’s resignation will be taken after consultation with Sharad Pawar and Congress central leadership.
In the last four days, Mr Chavan has been meeting legislators and party leaders and is in touch with Sharad Pawar and the Congress leaders in Delhi.
