The Kerala State Industrial Development Corporation (KSIDC), celebrating its 60th anniversary, is in talks with both government agencies and potential knowledge partners for setting up a ‘fill and finish’ facility for COVID-19 vaccine and later, a full-fledged vaccine manufacturing facility at its Life Sciences Park at Thiruvananthapuram district in Kerala.

 

M.G. Rajamanickam, Managing Director, KSIDC, said yesterday that the initial facility would involve a small investment though the second phase could see investments to the tune of Rs.300 crore to Rs.400 crore. The government agency is in talks with potential partners for investments after the State government constituted a working committee on vaccine production.
