In a major move, SII had lowered the price of its COVID-19 ‘Covishield’ vaccine from Rs 400 to Rs 300 per dose for states on Wednesday.
The Ministry of Interior (MHA) on Wednesday also provided Poonawalla with Category Y security across the country from the Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF).
Earlier this month, Adar Poonawalla had asked the government for financial help to increase vaccine production.
