So, we believe by June, we will really be at good production capacity in India and will become a very meaningful player in vaccination programme in India. Before that we will be providing doses, and may have a smaller marketplace discuss,” Kirill Dmitriev, CEO of the European Direct Investment Fund, advised NDTV.
