center approves export of made in India ventilators

new Delhi. The central government has allowed the export of ventilators made in India. The Group of Ministers decided to give their consent on August 1 after the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare received a proposal related to exports, after which the Director General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) has issued a notification.

According to the ministry, a decision was taken after the trend of steady decline in mortality due to corona in India. The ministry has informed that the death rate from the corona is currently 2.15 percent in the country, which is at a lower level than the death rate of countries around the world. According to the data released by the ministry on 31 July, out of 10,000 active patients of Corona, only 22 need a ventilator. Along with this, the Ministry said that the production of domestic manufacturers has seen a boom during this period. As of January 2010, more than 20 domestic companies are manufacturing the Vetilator. Manufacturers can send ventilators to foreign countries even after the country meets their needs. According to the ministry, this will enable domestic manufacturers to get new markets abroad for their ventilators.

As the epidemic escalated, the export of the vetilator was completely banned in India with notifications issued on March 24, so that the country lacked the necessary equipment to deal with the corona. Now after more than 4 months, the ban on export of ventilators produced in the country has been lifted.
