Govt allows export of Made-in-India ventilators

File PiC
Government has decided to permit exports of ventilators. The decision was taken as India continues to maintain a progressively declining low rate of case fatality of COVID-19 patients, which currently stands at 2.15 per cent.  Union Health Ministry said that in India fewer numbers of active cases are on ventilators.

As on yesterday, only 0.22 per cent of the active cases were on ventilators across the country. Additionally, there has been substantial growth in the domestic manufacturing capacity of ventilators. Presently, there are more than 20 domestic manufacturers for ventilators. 

The Group of Ministers, GOM on COVID-19 has considered and agreed to the proposal of the Ministry allowing the export of Made-in-India ventilators.  The Ministry hoped that domestic ventilators would be in a position to find new markets for Indian ventilators in foreign countries.

The export restriction on ventilators was imposed in March this year to ensure domestic availability to effectively fight COVID-19. All types of ventilators were prohibited for export.
