Registration Procedure in India.

Foreign principal can register the product in India through their office in India or they can register through any Indian agent.

The registration charge is USD 1500 (for Plant Registration) and USD 1000 per prodcut (for product registration). So the total charge to register one product is USD 2500 (USD 1500+USD 1000 per prodcut). But if the manufacturer want to register another product from the same plant they have to pay only USD 1000 for the product as the plant is already registered for other product. But if the plant will be different for the second product then the charge will be USD 2500 again.

Once registered the registration certificate will be valid for 3 years unless there is no change in the company constitution or manufacturing procedure of the product.

Normally it will take around 9 months to 1  year to register one product. Manufacturer has to send the registration documents (documents required for registration is mentioned hereunder) to Drug Controller General of India  (DCGI) and then DCGI will scrutinize all the documents and if it found o.k. then DCGI will ask to test 3 different batch  sample in Central Drug Testing Laboratory.  Once the sample is approved then agent has to submit the sample passing report to DCGI and then the registration certificate will be issued.
