Mission COVID Suraksha

Mission COVID Suraksha was introduced by the Central Government to help accelerate the development of some 5 to 6 indigenous vaccine candidates against COVID-19 and assist in their licensing and marketing endeavours. A grant of Rs.900 crore is provided for the research and development of India-made COVID-19 vaccines. It is implemented by the Mission Implementation Unit at the Biotechnology Industry Research Assistance Council (BIRAC).

The Central Government has recently decided to include some public sector undertakings under this mission in order to boost the vaccine production. The PSUs will receive grant under this mission if they are found to be supplying raw materials for the vaccine development.
