Revision in the estimates of domestic product (GDP) is a continuous process. Availability of more update data and changes in methodology which enlarges the access of data are the two factors which result in revision in the initial estimates of GDP. Base year of GDP is also revised regularly to have it aligned with the structural shifts that the economy witnesses continuously.

Manufacturing sector has significant fiscal policy implications. Most of indirect taxes, such as customs and excise duties and corporate income tax originate from manufacturing sector. While the expenditure implications are not that significant but both tax and transfers (including tax expenditure) proposed in Budget are manufacturing centric and aim at either accelerating investment or making the products more affordable and competitive.

The central themes of Jainism are ahimsa (non-violence), anekant (non-absolutism) and aprigraha (non-possession). Non-violence strengthens the autonomy of life of every being and if one believes that every soul is autonomous then one will never trample on its right to live. Non-absolutism strengthens the autonomy of thought of every individual and if one believes that every person is a thinking person then one will not trample on his thoughts and allows diverse views to prevail. Non-possession strengthens the interdependence of every soul and if one believes that one’s own existence is interdependent one will think twice before trampling on this planet . These core elements have been the building blocks of economics of Mahaveera.

The Pharmaceutical industry in India is the world's third-largest in terms of volume. Pharma companies require professionals with good communication skills and marketing strategies. Medical Representatives are considered to be the brand ambassador for the Pharma industry where they act as a link between doctors and companies. Pharma executives are the only link between Pharma Companies and Doctors (Customers). The Indian pharmaceutical market is likely to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14-17 percent in between 2012-16 hence there is plenty of scope for young students to start their career and explore opportunities in emerging Indian pharma industry. In this direction our objective is to:

  • a. Identify the gaps of demand and supply of pharma industry.
  • b. Offer Certificate course for rural graduates to be ready for pharma jobs.

At present there is a huge demand for medical representatives with requisite qualification & training. However due to the disconnect between curriculum and industry, pharma students after graduation are not competent enough to immediately meet the challenges of the industry and the companies in particular as well. To overcome this gap and to plug the demand supply gap of qualified trained medical representatives, CENTAD has taken this initiative to start a certification program for the students, who want to make their career in pharmaceutical industry.

This program would be initiated by CENTAD in association with Centre for Pharma Resources Development.
