Maharashtra to set up single-window clearance system for pharma companies

The Maharashtra government is planning to attract pharmaceutical companies to set up base in the state and has decided to set up a single-window system to grant them clearances and address their grievances. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Minister Jaykumar Rawal recently held meetings with representatives of the Indian Drug Manufacturing Association to understand why the pharma companies, for whom Maharashtra was earlier a preferred destination, shifted to Himachal Pradesh in recent years.
