NEW DELHI: The National Association of Software and Service Companies (NASSCOM) has said that India should be ready with funding for the next one year for the distribution of Covid-19 vaccine.

"The funding for such large scale distribution would be huge, and India should be ready with a funding of around Rs 80,000 crore for the next one year for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine," the trade association said in a news release on Friday.

The comment was not made by Satish D. Ravetkar, Executive Director of Serum Institute of India, but figured in a news release issued by NASSCOM post a virtual conference themed 'Vaccine Trials – Optimising the Supply Chain'.

In the webinar attended by various industry experts, Ravetkar said, "IT-enabled supply chain management should be established as at Serum Institute we produce 1.6 million doses annually, and we claim that every third child in the world is vaccinated by Serum Institute vaccines." (IANS)
