Part VII – Duty Rationalization

The measures in the areas of licensing and pricing policies would also be complemented by appropriate fiscal policy measures designed to progressively reduce import and excise duties to the minimum possible levels and to ensure that the cumulative incidence of duty on the bulk drugs is higher than that on the inputs and drug intermediates. Duty rationalization is intended to encourage cost efficient production of bulk drugs and of high quality formulations.
