Assignment Name : Medical Devices Parks
Location : Una and Nalagarh, Himachal Pradesh
Client: Himachal Pradesh State Government
The Medical Devices Industry requires availability of testing and laboratory facilities which would require huge investment. The lack of availability of such infrastructure is a deterrent to the development of the Medical and Devices Industry.
Keeping this in view the Government of India has come up with a scheme called ‘Promotion of Medical Device Parks’ which aims at creating a robust eco system for medical device manufacturing in India by providing common testing and laboratory facilities centre at one place for increased competitiveness, thereby reducing the manufacturing cost and with a view to making India a global leader in Medical Devices manufacturing. This would also ensure availability and affordability of medical devices in the domestic market.
The State Government of Himachal Pradesh has identified suitable locations for establishment of medical devices parks keeping in mind various factors viz, environmental pollution, assured availability of power, assured availability of water, transport connectivity with railways, national highway, port, airport, etc. The identified locations are also well away from the eco-sensitive zone of protected areas.
