He said the company is present in the state because of Ranbaxy, which has a large manufacturing facility here. Sun Pharma had acquired Ranbaxy in a $4-billion deal in 2014.

The Mumbai-based drug major has recently signed an agreement with ICMR and Madhya Pradesh government to work towards eradicating malaria, which will facilitate the Centre’s commitment to eradicate malaria in India by 2030.
