From next month Bharat biotech will increase the sale of vaccines to the private sector from 10 % of its total volume of production to 25% and also request the government  to revise the vaccine price which is capped at 150 rupees for the government sector and claim to be not sustainable in the long run.“Since January, we were supplying less than 10% to the private sector, and now the government has told us that we can increase it up to 25% for future deals.

From next month, we will look at revising the distribution pattern, and...it is going to move towards 25%,” said Sai Prasad, executive director, Bharat Biotech International Ltd.“There are future orders that the central government is discussing with us. We are looking at requesting a better price. It is not just the cost of vaccines but also the distribution cost of supplies to states that we have to take care of... that increases the overall cost... there needs to be a better price. For the private market, we don’t see any changes for now,” he said of the pricing scheme.
