Exporters ask govt to reduce timeline for granting manufacturing license for pharma producers

The pharmaceutical exporters in the country have urged the government to reduce the timeline for getting manufacturing license for pharmaceutical manufacturers for exports, so that pharmaceutical exports are not affected. For obtaining license even for the products being transferred from one site to other site and also for grant of license for existing age old products under different brand names for export purposes, the manufacturers have to take test license generating BE and stability data and it takes about 6-9 months for getting the license, Bhavin Mehta, Committee Of Administration (CoA) member, Pharmexcil, said.
