It follows an open process for empanelment of vendors, and procurement is generally done through an open tender process. The Secretary suggested that interested vendors from Ukraine may contact CSL for participating in such tendering process.

Though the necessary approval for signing the MoU was obtained from the Indian side in April 2013, it has not yet been inked. The Ukrainian Minister assured that she would ascertain the convenience of the Ukrainian side for signing the MoU signed at the earliest.

The Ukrainian Minister responded positively and assured that concerned authorities in Ukraine would be informed, said a release.
