As many of you know, this Committee was set up to recommend changes to India’s patent regime and submitted its report to the Parliament on 19 December 2001. According to the report: “the provision [section 107A(a)] has been made to ensure prompt availability of products, particularly generic drugs, immediately after the expiry of the term of the patent.”
I had this report with me earlier, but have misplaced it. And I’ve knocked on many doors to try and get a copy, but to no avail. Would any of you have a copy of this JPC report? If so, would you please urgently let me know at “shamnad[at]gmail.com”? Thanks very much.
