“Govt said it would consider Tamil Nadu proposal on HLL Biotech's vax plant”: Health Sec

Tamil Nadu Health Secretary J.Radhakrishnan said that the Central Government has only said it would look into the proposal given by the Tamil Nadu (TN) Chief Minister M.K. Stalin to operate the integrated vaccine complex in Chengalpattu belonging to HLL Biotech Ltd.

Refuting media report that the Union Government has given its in-principle approval to hand over the integrated vaccine complex to Tamil Nadu he said: "At the meeting with the Union Health Minister the state government's proposal was pointed. The Health Minister had said the proposal can be looked into." Radhakrishnan said the state government had proposed to take on lease HLL Biotech Ltd's integrated vaccine complex near here without past liabilities to run it with a private party.

Chief Minister M.K.Stalin in a letter to PM  Modi had earlier said that the assets of the vaccine complex be handed over to the state government on lease with full operational freedom and without past liabilities. "The State Government will identify a suitable private partner immediately and will make all efforts to commence vaccine production at the earliest," Stalin told Modi in May this year."The Government of India has already invested around Rs 700 crore in this manufacturing facility, which is almost complete but has been lying unutilized for want of additional funds," Stalin said.
