The goal of the strategy is to revitalise the State's pharmaceutical and medical device sector. This can be done by fostering domestic manufacturing, stimulating research and development, and expanding access to high-quality, reasonably priced medications for the population. The policy's objective is to create an environment that will support the expansion of the pharmaceutical industry.'¯ '¯ '¯

It will make it easier to get the pollution No Objection Certificate (NOC) and other licences needed to build pharmaceutical factories. To assess the project's viability, the team will examine the project data and the building plan provided by the investors. Following a thorough review of the dossier, an investor will receive a Letter of Comfort.
