The synthetic process know-how for Molnupiravir was sourced from CSIR-NIIST and the scale-up process was successfully carried out by CSIR-IICT.

The complete technology know-how will be transferred to Suven Pharmaceuticals, which will in turn manufacture and launch the drug in the domestic market as an effective medication for Covid-19 infected patients.
