Mr. Karthikeya Mishra an IAS has taken over as MD & CEO of AMTZ

There has been a management change at AMTZ. Mr. Karthikeya Mishra, IAS has taken over as MD & CEO of AMTZ effective yesterday. “The sudden removal of Dr Jitender Sharmaji will be a gross oversight by GoAP , a huge setback to Make in Andhra & Make in India for Medical Devices and will demotivate Industry from rest of India to be shy to venture into AP as industry seeks continuity and a predictable policy environment “ said Mr Rajiv Nath, Forum Coordinator AiMeD .
There are few Officers in Govt ( eg Metro Man Mr E. Sreedharan) who are able to inspire as Dr Sharma did to congregate policy Makers , Political Heads , Startups, Industry Bodies , Academia, Scientists , Engineers &!Product Developers, Regulators & even the Global Medical Community to congregate to Vizag to join forces  with Dr Sharma and his team in doing the impossible jaw dropping feat of creating a Med Tech Park in a barren land in less than a year stated a forlorn Nath.
You may be aware that till couple of years back Andhra Pradesh had virtually NIL Industry (less than 5 factories) for making Medical Devices.

AiMeD has been pushing for making India into a Manufacturing Hub for Medical Devices and the last 5 years witnessed significant development in the Medical Devices Sector by various Ministries of the Govt. – both at the Central and the State Govt. focusing on this earlier neglected Sector having realized its huge potential to become the next success story after IT & Pharma.

The experimental steps taken to establish the Andhra Pradesh Med Tech Park as a front runner, for establishment of Kalam Institute of Healthcare Technology, Correction of Inverted Duty Structure for some Devices, Price Caps on Stents and Knee Implants, QCI’s Indian Certification for Medical Devices, ICMR’s Essential List of Diagnostics and most recently establishment of Medical Device Promotion Council and Indian Biomedical Skill Consortium are some of the notable achievements of last 5 years in Med Tech space – all of which were either initiated or substantially supported by Dr Jitender Sharma .

While its understandable for a new Chief Minister to shuffle bureaucrats and bring his team of loyalists forward in this particular case where a non IAS Medical Doctor , Administrator & Medical Technology Expert was able to attract investors from Gujarat, Maharashtra, Haryana, Karnataka and Tamil Naidu , Germany, USA , Korea , China and Japan to come to distant undeveloped Vizag the unpredictability of continued policy support environment has shocked the medical devices community who question the merits of this decision which may derail further investments.

We were hoping for the Govt of India to recognise and reward Dr Sharma’s leadership in taking forward the initiatives of establishment of Andhra Med Tech Zone & Kalam Institute of Healthcare Technology at Visakhapatnam under the exemplary and able Leadership of Dr. Jitendar Sharma who has moved mountains in last 2-3 years to bring respect to Brand India internationally and hope the Prime Minister , Minister of Science & Technology , Minister of MSME Industry and the Minister Of Commerce & Industry find a Role to harness the talent demonstrated by Dr Sharma at a National level.

    It’s apparent that the author is a data geek. I like
    how he writes and writes facts. It is always such a pleasure to
    read posts created by actual professionals. I am fed up with that no-name, ghostwritten articles.

    That’s why it was so good to look at a persuasive piece.
