Medical devices will be soon delinked from the pharma sector so that these can chart a distinct and definitive course along with a facilitating regulatory frame work. Till now, the medical device sector has been governed by the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940. For pharma manufacturing purpose, the nodal authority has been the ministry of chemicals and fertilizer. Globally, the medical device industry is completely separate from pharma sector and is governed by separate set of legislations and regulatory framework. The government has also decided to bear the cost of effluent treatment plants and provide some basic facilities free of cost at the upcoming medical device parks in states such as Andhra Pradesh, Haryana, Gujarat, and Maharashtra, to make this sector globally competitive. This move has the potential to bring down the cost of medical device manufacturing in India by about 30 percent.
