This issue is dedicated to BioPharma sector because recently Govt has made GST mandatory and so much change has taken place in Indian economy particularly in Pharma Sector. The Tax slab has increased from 5-9% to 12% for some drugs and interstate taxes are removed. It is exciting to see changes in planning and strategies of organizations working in this sector and thus we will update our readers regularly on even small issues related to BioPharma research and industrial activities within and outside the country. In September 2017 we are media partner of BioPharma India where topmost Pharma Giants are meeting and thus it is very important to see their activities and actions because these giants will decide the course of pharma industry in due time.
