Investor-friendly policies with ease of doing business, attractive tax incentives and low cost of manufacturing and labour have made Sikkim favoured destination for pharmaceutical companies. Also, North East Industrial & Investment Promotion Policy (NEIIPP) 2007, gave a further impetus to the state's growth story where pharma companies such as Cipla, Sun Pharma, Zydus Cadila, Alembic, IPCA, Alkem Lab, Intas Pharma, Torrent Pharma and Unichem, were able to set up their base in and around the picturisque Himalayan town.
As Sikkim enters its second decade as pharma hub, the sector needs to identify its challenges and build a more sustainable future beyond tax incentives.
