Steps To Set Up A Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Plant In India
Setting up a pharmaceutical unit is not difficult, but it involves some additional formalities.
This blog explains the basic requirements and formalities.
Before that, let’s understand what is manufacturing in the pharma sector?
It means a set of operations such as procurement of raw material, processing unit, production, and packaging, releasing, storage and shipment of products, etc.
Get a basic understanding of the pharma sector before you do anything else. Without that, it is impossible to compete or survive in the industry.
Search an appropriate premise. The building and location must comply with the GMP Standards. You need to get information about it from the right resources.
You need two types of investments; fixed assets and liquid assets.
Fixed assets are building, infrastructure, land, furnishing, and so on. Liquid assets are human resources, raw material, marketing and promotions, and so on.

Machines and equipment
Different processing steps need different types of tools and machinery.
