Covid-19: MG plans to produce ventilators in India


According to a media report, MG is in talks with three medical equipment manufacturers including GE to produce ventilators at its Halol plant in Gujarat.

The carmaker is looking to manufacture ventilators based on existing designs of other brands that have already been approved. The company would create infrastructure at its Halol facility or even set up a separate unit to manufacture ventilators in India.

MG is also developing its own low-cost ventilator. A prototype is expected to be ready within a week. It could be put into production once it receives the regulatory approvals.

Earlier, MG had announced a donation of Rs. 2 crore for government hospitals and health institutions providing medical assistance in Gurgaon, Haryana and Halol, Gujarat.
