  • Also, the TIFAC mentioned in the report to create mega drug manufacturing cluster with advanced infrastructure and technology platform which will reduce the process of cost optimization and for fluorination, to have an investment in fermentation sector, to achieve techno-economic feasibility
  • They also aim to attain attention to the technologies like hazardous reaction, flow chemistry, cryogenic reactions and membrane technology.
  • Also, the TIFAC has asked GOI to encourage the chemical and pharma based industries to work in collaboration with advanced technology.
