विषाणू संसर्ग टाळण्यासाठी एन्झाइम १९

सध्या जगात कोरोना कोविड १९ या विषाणूने थैमान मांडले असून जगभर आरोग्य आणीबाणीची भयानक परिस्थिती निर्माण झाली आहे. या अतिसंसर्गजन्य रोगामुळे लाखो रुग्ण जीवन मरणाच्या उंबरठ्यावर आहेत. आपल्या भारतातही रोगाचा प्रसार झपाट्याने झालेला असल्याने त्या विषाणूपासून निर्जंतुकीकरण करणे आता आवश्यक बनले आहे. या विषाणू वरती अजून लस किंवा औषध मिळालेले नाही. या त्यामुळे आपण या विषाणूला दूर ठेवून आपल्या शरीरात जाणार नाही हेच जपले पाहिजे.

हे करत असताना या विषाणूशी लढण्यासाठी अजाणतेपणाने आपण घातक रसायनाचा व सॅनिटायझरचा वापर करत आहोत. रसायने शरीरास अपायकारक आहेत. त्यांचे आपल्या शरीरावर विपरीत परिणाम होऊ शकतात तसेच विविध रोग होऊ शकतात. यामुळे ही कृत्रिम रसायने कायम स्वरूपी उपाय होऊ शकत नाही व त्याचाच वारंवार आपण वापरही धोकादायक ठरू शकतो.

या समस्ये वरती आता आम्ही कायम स्वरूपी उपाय शोधला आहे. तो म्हणजे एन्झाइम १९ (BIODEGRADON  TM )विविध प्रकारची हीच एन्झाइम माणसाच्या शरीरात महत्वाची भूमिका वठवतात. त्यापासूनच प्रेरित होऊन एन्झाइम १९ बनवले आहे. कृत्रिम रसायन विरहित असलेल्या या उत्पादनात फळांच्या रसातील एन्झाइमचा वापर केलेला आहे.

हे पर्यावरण पूरक उत्पादन. कार्यालय, घर किंवा बाह्य स्वरूपातील फवारणी व निर्जंतुकीकरणासाठी एन्झाइम अत्यंत उपयुक्त ठरत आहे. हे संपूर्ण स्वदेशी आणि १०० टक्के नैसर्गिक उत्पादन आहे.

कोरोना विषाणूचा आकार ०.१२५ मायक्रॉन आहे ते एक प्रोटीन आहे व एन्झाइम १९ चा आकार 0.003 to 0.007 मायक्रॉन आहे त्याचा स्प्रे मारल्यावर तो करोना विषाणूवर हल्ला करून  विषाणू नष्टकरून टाकतो व विषाणूच्या निर्मितीची व पुनर्रचनेची साखळी तुटते. हे एन्झाइम १९ आपल्या शरीरावर २४ तास कार्यरत राहते व आपला स्पर्श झाल्यानंतर चिकटणाऱ्या विषाणूला नष्ट करते. मात्र पर्यावण पूरक असल्याने मानवी शरीरास काही अपाय करत नाही. यात कुठलेही रसायन  किंवा अल्कहोल नाही. एन्झाइम १९ ( BIODEGRADON TM) ट्रेडमार्क नोंदणीकृत असून राष्ट्रीय स्तरावरही हाफकिन इन्स्टिटयूट, सोमय्या आयुर्विहार प्रयोगशाळा , BTS LAB अशा ठिकाणी याची प्रयोगशाळेत तपासणी होऊन प्रमाण पत्र मिळालेली आहेत.

Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) Mega Unity Webinar Highlights Pain Points Of Real Estate – Underlines the need for all stakeholders to come together on a common platform and convey critical changes that the authorities need to urgently implement

Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) Mega Unity Webinar Highlights Pain Points Of Real Estate – Underlines the need for all stakeholders to come together on a common platform and convey critical changes that the authorities need to urgently implement

Jun 8, 2020

June 8, 2020

In the face of adversity comes opportunity. The COVID-19 crisis offers the real estate industry a ‘never before’ opportunity to reset and redo to reinvigorate cities like Mumbai. However, this can only happen if specific policy changes are announced by the authorities. These were the key takeaways from the Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) ‘Mega Unity Webinar,’ held on 8th June 2020 at 05.00 pm, which highlighted the pain points of real estate and endeavoured to come up with practical solutions and suggestions. The biggest webinar brought various developers associations, channel partners associations, architects engineers associations and allied associations together on a common platform for the first time ever.

Harrish Jain, Vice President, Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA), explained, “This pain has brought us all together, it may unite us together also. Real estate has been facing multiple problems and now the current crisis of COVID-19 has added to them. Earlier we were communicating differently with the government and that was not the right way. Uniting the associations will give us a voice which is stronger and will help us to communicate with the government in the right way. We have to be united together to achieve progress. We have been discussing problems all through the lockdown period during the BDA webinar series, now let’s concentrate on how to resolve them. Let us brainstorm and see how to get solutions out of this. Since there are so many associations participating today, we have to be united to resolve issues. Alone we are a drop, together we can be an ocean. There is strength in numbers, let’s unite together.”

Nayan Shah, President, CREDAI MCHI, made a comparison between real estate as a percentage of India’s economy vis-à-vis that in the USA, UK and China. “About 6% of India’s economy is real estate. India’s real estate value is $1.20-1.40 billion, our share will go up to $500-600 bn in the next 5-6 years. The government of India is spending more than Rs 7 lakh crores in agriculture, while the real estate sector is only asking for Rs 30,000-40,000 crore to grow from $140 bn to $500-600 bn. We are going to try to get relief from central government and Reserve Bank of India and the finance ministry, not as a matter of sympathy but because we have strength and we can make a big difference in the economic status of the country. Apart from the pains that we are passing through, it is important to give this economic data to the Government. Real estate has a price multiplier effect. This is the extent to which real estate can make a difference.”

Ajay Ashar, Spokesperson of the CREDAI MCHI MMR Action Committee, praised BDA for having accumulated so many players on one platform. “This is the right approach. When the Rs 20 lakh crore package was announced we had great expectations from the government as we are the second-largest employment generating sector. However, we were disappointed. Restructuring of loans is very important. Home loan rates to be reduced. So many things we are facing. I requested everybody, let us understand how much is the pain, how we can be united. We have to do something, get on one platform and focus. This is how the CREDAI MCHI MMR Action Committee was born. In no time we had 13 organizations ready to speak in one voice. In a democracy, everything comes down to numbers. We have so many different associations but all our causes are the same. If we unite and speak in one voice, nothing can stop us. If our combined voice reaches, it will resonate. Let’s have one voice, one agenda and one platform. We should stand and support each other. If our voice is unanimous and having common goals we can achieve anything. The economy will be revived only if our industry is rolling.”

CA Ramesh Prabhu, Chairman, Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association (MSWA), affirmed that “We are facing a huge crisis. Redevelopment is the need of the hour for Mumbai; every society is looking for developers to perform but we also understand the challenges faced by them. Applying GST on the rehab portion is a harsh step, the government needs to come up with some package for real estate and redevelopment.”

The webinar was also accessed live on BDA’s YouTube channel: www.youtube.com/bdamumbai. The unique webinar hosted by BDA had representations from the CREDAI-MCHI MMR Action Committee; Developer Associations such as CREDAI MCHI –Mumbai, MCHI –Thane, MCHI –MVC, MCHI – Vasai, Virar, MCHI –Raigad, MCHI – Navi Mumbai, CMDWA, MSDA, NMBDA, MCHI Kalyan Dombivli,  YOUTH Association, Progressive Neral Karjat, MBD, MHBA, Khopoli Builders Association; Channel Partner Associations like NAR- India, AREA group, MEAA, GREA, GREAAT, KKEAA, TEAA, CREAA, REAAK, GEAWA, FMBPDA, Property PPL, SMART, MERA, NEPRA, KDRA, KEASWA, AWEAA, GEAWA, SPREA, SCEAWA, MBA; Architects & Engineers Associations like Architects & Engineers, Indian Society Of Structural Engineers (ISSE); The Maharashtra Societies Welfare Association (MSWA), Registration Fee & Stamp Duty Payers Association (REGD), Cooperative Societies Residents Users & Welfare Association and the Federation of Accommodation Industry of India.

BDA Profile

The Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) is created out of a Movement. It is more of a movement than an association. In a matter of 12 months, more than 500 developers mainly into redevelopment have joined the movement. Borivali Developers Association was born out of exactly such a need in the year 2019. A small group of five developers primarily involved in redevelopment projects in Borivali, initiated the idea of such an organisation. However, in a very short span of time, the idea caught the imagination of developers across the city involved in redevelopment and therefore the organization was renamed and registered as Brihanmumbai Developers Association (BDA) so as to represent all its members who joined the movement from across the city of Mumbai.

At BDA we realize that when we do quality redevelopment projects, we not only contribute to the economy of the nation but also bring about a huge change in the lifestyles and aspirations of the existing slum dwellers, tenants or society members whose buildings we redevelop. It is therefore about time that our social and economic contribution is recognized by the authorities and due support is provided to ease out the difficulties faced by the industry.

COVID 19 Economic Impact Study By Levers For Change A Report From Ground Zero Understand The Impact Of Corona Virus On Indian States Industries And Stakeholders

COVID 19 Economic Impact Study By Levers For Change A Report From Ground Zero  Understand The Impact Of Corona Virus On Indian States Industries And Stakeholders

Jun 7, 2020

COVID-19 has changed the way the ‘normal’ world functions. It has rattled the fundamentals and we are all trying to cope with the ‘new normal’ – a term that is amongst the most trending today!

Industries, across sectors and states in India and globally, have been greatly affected. Some bearing the brunt directly, while others facing the challenges indirectly, thanks to supply chain disruptions. While some businesses are sailing the tailwinds, most are grappling with the effects of this global pandemic. Consumer and business dynamics have literally changed overnight. This has forced us, as people and as organisations, to re-evaluate our preparedness to fight the disease and secure the future, for ourselves and our stakeholders.

As an industry or organisation or business, navigating this COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath is a huge challenge, no doubt. It needs a methodology – a clear approach – to see through all the chaos, bring in a method to the madness, so to speak. It is crucial to clearly understand the economic landscape at a macro level, before and during this pandemic, to help extrapolate what could perhaps be the ‘after’ state of affairs at a micro-level.

It is with this thought process that Levers For Change (LFC), a decade-old Business Transformation Consultancy based in Indore, Madhya Pradesh, embarked on a detailed study, in an earnest attempt to understand, and thereon share insights on, this truly unprecedented pandemic and its impact on the Indian economy.

The team led by Mr.Ankur Kumar (Operating Partner), reached out to all the stakeholders they had ever come in contact with over their decade-long journey. They connected with hundreds of stakeholders: CEO’s, small business owners, farmers, large distributors, retailers, truck owners and salaried employees across states. They were able to cut across all strata leveraging their network, that covers almost 65% of India’s tehsils. All this, with the keen intent to provide constructive insights, to help businesses and stakeholders form a clear view of the economic situation.

Why did LFC feel a need to do this? What was the purpose of this study?

“COVID-19 has presented an unprecedented level of uncertainty in the business environment, and as consultants, the one question that our clients frequently ask – ‘when will the situation become normal?’ To answer this question, we looked at several data models that predict the opening of lockdown and recovery of the economy; however all these models varied significantly.”, explains Mr.Omprakash.

“Moreover, given the diversity of India, there are so many layers of complexity, for instance, certain states host high economic activities while there are others that are rather low on this scale; while, some states are connected to the international markets, some are fairly insulated from the global dynamics. This apart we have the quintessential urban-rural divide. None of the existing data models, in a nutshell, comprehensively addressed these complexities & dynamics that are peculiar to our country,  in many ways.”

“Given this diversity, exposure or lack of it and the divide across the states, it is difficult to make predictions that will hold ground country-wide or sector-wide. For example, Coimbatore, Tirupur, Karur in Tamilnadu and Surat, Vadodara in Gujarat,  are two prominent textile belts, but the severity of infection is different in each of these states. The value chain and recovery of the Textile sector are thus difficult to predict accurately.”

Businesses need to understand the country-wide recovery by actually looking at the markets and geographies at the ground level – local level.  We need to understand that even within a state, there are different economic centres, and each of it is exposed to varying degrees of impact.

“It thus becomes very important for leaders to have a holistic understanding. It is for this reason, to fill this gap, that we decided to undertake such an extensive study, at the local level – at ground zero.”, says Mr.Ankur Kumar

“This report intends to help understand which sectors/ areas, over a period of time, are likely to open up faster, and which may take longer. This will enable leaders to plan their business activities accordingly. A fine example of this – a client of ours, who wished to do a sales transformation project in a particular part of the country, is now looking at repositioning the market to address.”

Over the past decade, LFC has planned and implemented several sales transformation programs, spanning various sectors – Agriculture input, Construction, FMCG and several other industries. This helped build strategic touch-points across districts.

Mr.Ankur Kumar explains, “For the study, we identified the top 10 states in India that contribute to 75% of the GDP. In these states, we further identified districts that contribute to 80% of the state GDP. We tracked and reached out to our deep network in all these districts. We took their feedback – their view on the COVID-19 impact on Agricultural, Construction, Trade, Local Manufacturing, Local Transportation and other business activities – at their ground zero.”

“We combined their feedback with the metric of Healthcare System Readiness, which we understood from the Govt. websites – number of tests per million and medical infrastructure available to deal with the pandemic. We also read through the various reports published on COVID-19 and took wisdom from them. In this way, we created this report bottoms-up, from ground zero. It strives to help business leaders to find the right direction, to help pivot as needed.”

The report deep-dives and presents the ‘before-state’, ‘current-state’ and the actions taken by the Govt. that will impact the ‘future-state’. It explores the situation state-wise and sector-wise for insights.

A glimpse into the report

The largest, and most impacted state of Maharashtra from the economy point of view:

Maharashtra is the largest state of India, contributing to almost 14% of national GDP. It also accounts for 36% COVID-19 cases in India.

The top 3 districts have come to a total halt. COVID impact on the districts of Pune and Thane has hampered the manufacturing of the estate; Trade and Services based economy of Mumbai is also disrupted due to social distancing; Agriculture as a whole has taken a beating with farmers struggling with inefficient logistics, harvest being sold way below MSP and coping with a labour shortage.

Services contribute to 54% of GSDP, manufacturing is the second major contributor accounting for 27% of GSDP and agriculture contributing to 18% of GSDP. None of these sectors, except Agriculture, has seen any significant intervention from the Government to expedite the recovery process.

The number of cases in Maharashtra is expected to peak in the month of July and from there it should take further 2 months to emerge completely out of lockdown. However, the demand recovery and recovery of the economy as such should be expected only in the second quarter of FY22.

The report details the top 10 states in this manner. As such, with this study, LFC summarises that Indian towns will be fully back to normal by the end of Q3-FY21 and the Indian economy will revive by Q2-FY22.

Mr.Sunil Chordia – CMD, Rajratan Global Wire (Asia’s second-largest bead wire manufacturing company, with factories in India and Thailand), also a Member of CII, Western Region, too concurs with the findings and shared his views on the topic.

  

“The war against Corona is proving to be very costly. In spite of which part of the globe you live in or whatever type of interventions the government makes – the economic cost seems to be very high. In India particularly the economic cost of lockdown surely seems to be underestimated. While we might seem to be doing better in terms of infections, there is no real clarity on how the resumption of supply chains back to normal levels – will happen.”

“With already a highly broken & fragmented supply chain – opening up of lockdown being handled by different state governments differently, any model that predicts economic recovery shall be only partly true. In that sense, I find this study of LFC, reasonably fair – given their model looks at local economic centres and their recovery patterns. I tend to agree with their findings of the economy coming back to pre-COVID levels, surely not before Q2 of FY22”

RSBL Has World’s First Encrypted QR-Coded Gold Coins Says Mr Prithviraj Kothari Managing Director Of RSBL

May 31, 2020

Gold investments are sacred to most Indians. However, for years now, buyers have been adversely affected by the gush of fakes in the market. With very little known about identifying them, investors have been duped with no recourse. Bringing an end to their plight is RiddiSiddhi Bullions Ltd. (RSBL) through their QR-coded encrypted gold coins – a first in the world. RSBL, India’s top bullion brand, has led the modernization of the bullion industry through its various offline and online initiatives. Now, with their encrypted QR-coded minted gold coins, they hope to end the menace of fakes. They have rolled these new RSBL Coins on 17th February 2020 and set yet another benchmark in the global bullion industry.

The new coins will be available in all quantities – from 1 gm. to 100 gms. The primary objective is to bring in more transparency in a market that’s flooded with fakes. The gold coins can be bought from the retail outlets, while the B2B buyers can purchase them from the RSBL Spot terminal. Once purchased, all one has to do is scan it under the RSBL Spot app and details like brand, purity and weight will immediately appear on the screen. While the app is available on Google Play and on the Apple Store as well, this feature is currently live for Android users and will soon be live on iOS platforms too. The coins, which come in tamperproof packaging, are a first in the global bullion market with its scannable QR-codes.

Said Mr. Prithviraj Kothari, Managing Director of RSBL “At RSBL, we have our ears to the ground and have been trying to innovate solutions, for many years, for our buyers who have been struggling with the challenge of identifying fake gold coins from original. A lot of methods have been in place, but none of them were foolproof. After a lot of research and trials, we are launching our encrypted QR-coded gold coins, a first in the world. This will provide security not just to buyers but also jewellers who can identify a genuine RSBL gold coin by simply scanning it on the RSBL Spot app. It has never been easier or more fail-safe. We are sure that, like all our earlier digitization initiatives, this too will be embraced with open arms. We are here to help our community and are happy to take the global industry one step forward with our initiative. The response will inspire us to keep innovating and making the bullion market more progressive with every step”

RSBL has led the industry for over 25 years, and even launched India’s first and only electronic and over the counter bullion trading system, RSBL SPOT in 2008. Through RSBL eCoins, the company made the entire process of buying and selling gold and platinum coins transparent and simple. The company has won numerous awards for its contribution to the industry. With 3,500+ clients for RSBL Spot Terminal and a solid pan-India presence, RSBL is India’s most trusted bullion brand.

With the new QR-coded encrypted gold coins, RSBL has made the bullion industry more accessible to the common buyer under leadership of Mr. Prithviraj Kothari. If you’ve been thinking of investing in top quality and most trusted gold coins, your search ends with RSBL’s newly launched coins.

Augmont App Brings Together The Best Of Online And Offline Purchase Options With Its Advanced Features And Solid Offline Presence –  Says Sachin Kothari Director Of Augmont

May 31, 2020

Exclusive Interview

Q.1 Please tell us more about Augmont app? How does it work?

Augmont App is a platform that helps buyers to purchase gold and silver just with a tap of your finger at the Best Price Guaranteed. When you think, the traditional way of buying gold comes with a lot of inconvenience. Buyers have to make physical trips to a jeweler, pay unverified prices, and worry about purity and then about storing it safely. We wanted to acknowledge all these problems and come up with a one-stop solution. Being one of the best and innovative precious metal company in the country, we wanted to give our consumers the best solution possible. Hence, with the help of technology we introduced Augmont App earlier last year.

Augmont app brings together the best of online and offline purchase options with its advanced features and solid offline presence. Being one of the largest gold refineries in India, we have way more control over quality compared to our other counterparts and is able to offer benchmark prices as compared to any other platform and the same benefit is made available to the retail consumers. Buyers can purchase gold at lowest price of Re.1/- giving them the power to invest in gold and silver as per their convenience. Customers can ask for home delivery of physical gold as low as 0.1 gram which is a Gold coin costing less than Rs.500/- . All you have to do is register on our app, enter the amount of gold you wish to purchase select the mode of payment and the rest is taken care by us. We will store the physical gold in a 100% secured lockers that is controlled and monitored by IDBI Trusteeship Services. The gold stored is so safe that even Augmont cannot access it unless the customer asks for doorstep delivery or decides to sell back to the company. For those who like to keep their gold with themselves, we will deliver it to your doorstep within 3 days to virtually every Indian corner.

For buyers who want to buy gold regularly in a disciplined manner, there is the option of very convenient monthly SIPs, available in multiples of 1000.

If one wishes to encash profits, a few simple taps on the app help in selling your gold at real-time market prices, and the money appears within minutes in the bank account. And no matter how much gold you buy, it is all 999 pure, ensuring you get nothing but the best.

Q.2 Who are your customers and how the app benefits them?

Anyone with a Smartphone who wants to buy or invest in gold through our app is our customer. We have received request for gold worth Re. 1/- to Rs.1 crore. We get request from a normal individual to a retailer. Large number of demand through our app comes from South India.

As mentioned earlier, our app is a one-stop solution to all the problems that buyers face while purchasing gold traditionally. Additionally it provides buyers with the flexibility of choosing the amount and/or quantity of gold as per their convenience.

Q.3 Where do you store the physical gold?

Once the gold is purchased it is stored in a 100% secured locker which is regulated by IDBI trusteeship services. We are very particular about the safety of the gold purchased by our buyers and don’t compromise with the safety of the products whatsoever.

4 Do you think online gold buying is becoming an alternative for people who don’t want to go out and buy gold from retail stores?

Definitely. Today with the easy accessibility of technology the process of buying is made very convenient. It may be buying clothes, food or even gold the digital medium is the most preferred and comfortable medium of purchasing today especially with the millennial who want everything at the tip of their finger. Why go out when you can get it at your door step? That’s the ideology of the generation today and digi-gold just fits perfectly. Of course, the concept is new and it will take some time for everyone to be comfortable with it without any apprehensions but it’s working very well with our young audience.

Q.5 Do you think online will replace offline in future? If yes then why?

In the longer run Omni-Channel will lead the way. It’s not about Online or Offline, it’s about the right balance between Online and Offline. For E.g., Big retail brands like Walmart have their investment in e-commerce brands like Flipkart, thus having both offline and online presence. Offline outlets are using online methods to ease customers’ life. Hence, Omni-Channel is the future.

India Will Serve As The Pharmacy Of The World We Will Be Truly ATMANIRBHAR In Pharma And Healthcare Urges Best Brains To Work Together For Humanity On Priority – Ashwini Kumar Choubey Minister Of State For Health And Family Welfare

India Will Serve As The Pharmacy Of The World  We Will Be Truly ATMANIRBHAR In Pharma And Healthcare Urges Best Brains To Work Together For Humanity On Priority – Ashwini Kumar Choubey Minister Of State For Health And Family Welfare

May 29, 2020

“India will serve as the pharmacy of the world; we will be truly ‘AtmaNirbhar’ in pharma and healthcare; urges best brains to work together for humanity on priority”: Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, highlights the significance of innovation and start-ups during the inaugural session of CorpGini’s virtual panel series on ‘The Future of Healthcare, Pharma and Allied Industries’

29th May 2020 : “India is the pharmacy of the world and will remain the pharmacy of the world. A vaccine for COVID-19 will soon be developed by Indian scientists,” Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, declared in conversation with Mahavir Lunawat, Group Founder, Pantomath, and Co-Founder CorpGini, while addressing the inaugural session of the three-day virtual panel series on ‘The Future of Healthcare, Pharma and Allied Industries’ being conducted on April 29-31, 2020. Encouraging innovations in Pharma, the Hon’ble Minister declared that we should focus on ‘brain gain and avoid ‘brain drain’. Hon’ble Minister suggested that platforms like CorpGini must work on bringing the best Indian brains back home so that India can strengthen its dominance in pharma and wellness sectors and serve humanity. Highlighting India’s rich history in pharma, he urged the sector to foster innovation, acknowledging the significance of a platform like Corpgini that has 3000 plus corporates and solutions associated with it, as a key process influencer and growth driver.

Sharing insights during the virtual panel discussion held on the theme ‘Digital Health – Life Sciences 4.0: Disruptive Technology or Just a Disruption’ with the sub-theme ‘Industry impact and business continuity post-COVID-19: Production, supply, distribution, product innovation, global trade norms and challenges, the Hon’ble Minister pointed out that the topic is very relevant and useful given the current situation. Comparing CorpGini’s initiative with the ‘Samudra Manthan,’ the Minister said that the sessions being held over three days will yield a nectar that will enable India to be self-sufficient and confident, even bigger in the pharma and healthcare sectors, driven by innovation.

Mahavir Lunawat, Group Founder, Pantomath, and Co-Founder, CorpGini, said, “We believe, pharma and healthcare industry is poised to witness unprecedented advancements. Be it ‘point of care’ or wearables or virtual inspection mechanism, or telemedicine or drug discovery by machine learning, technology is going to play an extremely significant role in pharma industry. Towards India’s quest to become ‘pharmacy of the world’, significant efforts need to be taken across segments. Besides, there is dire need to improve medical infrastructure on priority.  We are working very actively in pharma and healthcare industry and bring globally curated innovative solutions to help solve industry problems.”

Amit Jain, Co-Founder & CEO, CorpGini, expressed happiness with the government’s support for innovation and said that the minister’s inspiring words would motivate start-ups to raise benchmarks by leveraging the strengths provided by the CorpGini platform, “Our attempt is to see how corporates and start-ups can bridge the gap. We have two more days of virtual panel discussions lined up. In tomorrow’s first session we will be talking about the market from an investor’s perspective. The second session will look at the ‘new normal.’ The start-up showcase will be tomorrow and the day after.”

During his address, Shri Ashwini Kumar Choubey, Hon’ble Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare, GoI, underlined the fact that “60% of the medicines in the world are exported from India. It is rightly said that India holds a 30% market share. From a situation where we had none, today there are 641 test labs across India. Testing machines, PPE kits have been created within India, making us truly ‘AtmaNirbhar.’ PM Narendra Modi had set a target for conducting one lakh tests a day before May 31st, we have already surpassed that and have done 1,22,000 tests per day. India of 21st century will be a global inspiration for the development of the world. Today we have 600 PPE kits manufacturers making 3.5 lakh kits per day, sending them to all states. ‘Make in India’ has been given a boost, making India self-sufficient as well. Medical colleges have been augmented, we are not just adhering to global parameters but also exceeding them.”

“As soon as the COVID-19 pandemic was declared, PM Narendra Modi asked our ministry to start working on a solution. We have been monitoring what is happening across India and the world. A Group of Ministers was immediately convened and we have been expediting the search for a vaccine. Stopping International air travel to India, announcing the lockdown were important steps due to which today we are better off than the world. The Indian government’s thinking has been very good. The numbers are rising but if our PM hadn’t displayed foresight, the situation would have been much worse. Even developed countries having all the healthcare infrastructure and equipment can’t deal with COVID-19,” he added.

“Take care of yourself and others, adhere to lockdown norms. We have to learn to live with COVID-19, be prepared for lockdown 5.0. The government has relaxed norms during lockdown 4.0. Our self-confidence has not reduced and we have despite the circumstances even allowed economic activity to resume, returned migrants to their native place. The lockdown enables us to keep numbers in control. Steps have been taken to ensure that the poor are not left hungry. In which other country does the PM himself call people in villages and ask how they are coping with and managing the situation?” the Minister affirmed.

“A lot of healthcare innovations have been possible in India. The Indian government has been very supportive of innovative solutions. We don’t think just about ourselves, we care about the entire world. Crores of people have benefited from Ayushman Bharat. 21,000 hospitals from both, public and private sector have joined with it. We have 1.5 lakh primary health centres and will be transforming them into Health and Wellness centres, making the shift from illness to wellness. Telemedicine has progressed during COVID-19, connecting to even remote villages. People have benefitted a lot from this. Check-up systems have been enhanced. We want to move towards universal healthcare. We want to make check-ups affordable and easy to access. Health for all is a tradition in India. During COVID-19 we have issued healthcare advisories. We aim to make healthcare affordable with a holistic approach,” the Minister emphasized.

Nilesh Jain, Venture Partner Z Nation Lab, Founder Clinivantage Healthcare Technologies, moderated the panel. “During the last two and half months, while India has been under lockdown, pharma has been looking at innovation in a very different way, PM’s ‘AtmaNirbhar Bharat’ applies to pharma, we need to identify how we can be self-sufficient. Innovation is going to be the centrepiece of the pharma industry going forward” he opined.

Arvind Kumar Pandian, Strategic Partnerships, USAID, said, “The biggest challenge for innovations is access to market and access to capital. We help in solving that. We have made 1.4 bn investments, we work closely with the national and state governments. The challenge for innovators is getting access to large markets. We have partnered with National Health Authority and are providing $50 mn grants for innovators.”

Y.K. Gupta, Technical Committee (GLP Program) Program in DST on Digital Health, explained, “Any drug development requires clinical trial and clinical trials due to COVID-19 have been a challenge. If there is a large missing data, ultimately getting to a conclusion is a challenge. So the question can startups and pharma industry use AI for data usage and study to get more accurate results? The other challenge that can be solved is remote clinical trials and the caretaker can be the moderator.”

Sudarshan Jain, Secretary-General, Indian Pharmaceutical Alliance, said, “COVID-19 is a great opportunity; any adversity has to be transformed into an opportunity. There’s outstanding work that is being done in India. India controls 60% of the vaccine market. The timeframe for vaccine development in India has been reduced from 10 years to 1 year.”

DineshHYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua” HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/dinesh_dua”Dua, Chairman, HYPERLINK “https://twitter.com/Pharmexcil”Pharmexcil (Pharmaceuticals Export Promotion Council of India), said, “India is a great destination for doing bio-equivalence clinical trials. There is cost-effectiveness, precision, and knowledge in India. I think the first COVID-19 vaccine will come from India. By September or December, we will have a solution to this pandemic.”

Umang Chaturvedi, Head of Policy, Mylan Lab, said “A major concern is the dependence on other countries for the raw materials for medical equipment. The whole medical education infrastructure should be looked after. It is important to have a quick regulatory ecosystem.”

The proceedings concluded with Neha Jain, co-founder, CorpGini, thanking the session partners FICCI and Pharmexcil.

CorpGini will continue to conduct sector-specific panel discussions moving forward true to its ethos of being a global innovation platform connecting corporates and startups across the globe.

Before this, it had organised a Virtual Panel Discussion on ‘Re-thinking Real Estate Marketing Considering the COVID Situation,’ on May 16, 2020. Before that, the ‘Future of Design & Construction’ sessions organised by CorpGini from April 20-22, 2020 had witnessed an amalgamation of expertise from varied professionals within the design and construction community and the financiers backing the construction industry, with globally acclaimed thought leaders Sir Ratan Tata, Padmashri Hafeez Contractor and many more.

These sessions followed the first virtual panel discussion ‘In the fight against COVID-19 to solve corporate sustainability and growth challenges’  held from April 6, 2020 onwards, which witnessed participation from 50+ leaders, 10,000 plus corporates and 100 + startups.

CorpGini, founded in 2019, is an initiative by Pantomath Group and Z Nation Lab that connects leading corporates to innovative startups that are building solutions that solve industry-wise problems. The panel discussion will be followed by select pitches from CEOs of startups which can provide valuable solutions to Corporates around key areas of challenges in present times.

The HPA Punch will, hence, help aid all participants to not just feel a sense of community in this time of crisis, but also aid as a platform for prospective business development and lead generation. Via the virtual sessions, will be a welcome relief in the times of quarantine and self-isolation; helping participants to feel like they belong to a larger global community that is trying to fight this battle together.
