The MP promised to work towards this goal after K. Srinivas Rao, The Managing Director of Indian Institute of Biotechnology Pvt Ltd, which is located at Hyderabad based NIPER campus, said that the expansion of the premier pharma centre in Hyderabad got stuck due to non-availability of land.“ NIPER’s plans to expand its base in Hyderabad for which Rs 400 crore was made available got stuck owing to non-availability of 50 acres land in and around Hyderabad,” Mr Srinivas Rao said at an interactive session between pharmaceutical academia-industry at Andhra University.
According to APIIC officials, 100 acres of land is available with APIIC and the required land could be allocated to the pharma centre. There are seven of NIPERS across India, including the one in Hyderabad. The premier institutes offer a range of courses in pharmaceutical sciences and have some of the best labs, and are known for producing quality students.
