Start with more investment in human resources infrastructure After the fourth unit of Ranbaxy Laboratories was banned from shipping to the US its Food and Drug Administration commissioner is set to visit India to resolve several of these persistent contentions with the health ministry Other Indian pharmaceutical companies like Wockhardt and RPG Life Sciences have also received notices from the US regulator about their shoddy manufacturing practices When the Ranbaxy scandal first broke the commerce ministry’s first reflex was denial or to see this in nationalist terms alone as a Big Pharma plot to undermine India’s plucky and successful businesses While India does have economic interests in the success of this $15 billion export industry it needs solid regulation to ensure this success is sustainable In response to the FDA’s monitoring of Indian firms the Central Drugs Standards Control Organisation (CDSCO) fought for the right to check manufacturing facilities abroad apparently to make sure that drugs coming into India meet quality standards This claim would be taken more seriously if the CDSCO had not been such a visible failure — a parliamentary standing committee on health in May last year laid out the remarkable chaos in domestic drug regulation even in terms of granting licences Manufacturing laxity aside it found that many drugs were being marketed before being put through the required clinical trials and drugs banned in other markets were available here Regulatory dossiers were missing for several drugs and in many cases approvals were granted by non-technical staff Expert testimonials were suspiciously similar in many cases State issued licences operated in their own orbit and these authorisations were not sent back to the central regulator The Centre has moved a new drugs and cosmetics amendment bill which conceives of a professionally managed Central Drugs Authority like the FDA to swallow the existing CDSCO But it will take more than surprise inspections to change this regulatory culture — it will involve breaking the collusion between certifiers and companies and more than anything it will require greater investment The US FDA has a strength of some 14000 people while the Indian regulator had 327 in 2012 While the pharma industry is exploding and the CDSCO’s workload is growing by 20 per cent every year it lacks the staff and infrastructure advisors and independent testing labs to do its job That needs to change first if the government is serious about a regulatory overhaul For all the latest Opinion News download Indian

revenue saying it was unfit for modern times and starving the grass-roots of funding (Source: AP) Top News Cricket Australia and the Australian Cricketers’ Association announced they had agreed a new pay deal “in principle” on Thursday finally ending an acrimonious dispute that threatened a tour of Bangladesh and this year’s Ashes series The previous five-year collective bargaining agreement expired on June 30 which had left about 230 players effectively unemployed and forced the cancellation of Australia’s ‘A’ tour of South Africa The immediate repercussions of the deal are that two tests in Bangladesh will now go ahead in August and September with the Australia squad scheduled to gather in Darwin next week for a pre-tour camp “In announcing this agreement we are restoring certainty beginning to repair relationships especially with the fans” Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland told reporters “We want the focus to be back on the cricket … I’m very confident by the time the first ball is bowled this summer all of this will be well and truly behind us” Both the board and the players’ union were bruised in the tortuous 10-month negotiation but ultimately the deal represents an emphatic win for the players and a huge back-down by the board Cricket Australia had tried to jettison a 20-year-old model of under which players receive a fixed percentage of revenue saying it was unfit for modern times and starving the grass-roots of funding The players though were adamant the arrangement should be retained and it survived in the “heads of agreement” the deal put in place while the broader Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is hammered out over the next four to six weeks A tired-looking Sutherland declined to say whether the deal was a win for the players but insisted it was a win “for the game” that would allow greater investment in the grass-roots “It’s a very different revenue-share model to what was previously the case It’s been modernised to allow the game more flexibility” he said seated next to union chief Alistair Nicholson at the Melbourne Cricket Ground “Neither side has got everything we wanted out of these negotiations but they shouldn’t be approached with a winner takes all mindset In that spirit I think we’ve reached a good compromise” GRIEVANCES AIRED Nicholson said players would share up to 30 percent of agreed revenue consisting of 275 percent of forecast revenue streams and a 25 percent performance pool “This is estimated to be up to A$500 million ($396 million) in the next five-year period” he added outlining the agreement “A revenue sharing model ensuring all players male and female are partners in the game of cricket” The dispute overshadowed Australia’s home summer of cricket and grew increasingly bitter as both sides took to airing their grievances in public The union refused to deal with CA’s lead negotiator and were angered when Sutherland warned players would be unemployed and unpaid without a new agreement on the table Players subsequently boycotted the ‘A’ tour and warned the tours to Bangladesh India and the Ashes series were under threat Sutherland said both parties regretted that the dispute had become a turn-off for fans and Nicholson left little doubt there was still some bad blood between the players and the board “I think that will take some time (to repair)” he said “But that’s something we will now work through together and for the good of the game” Australia vice captain David Warner a vocal proponent of the players’ position throughout the dispute made clear his approval “Great outcome to retain the revenue share for all players now and in the future while supporting the games grassroots” he posted on Twitter “Looking forward to getting back out on the park and doing what we love playing cricket” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App More Top NewsWritten by Nandagopal Rajan | Updated: February 24 2017 7:25 pm WhatsApp Product Manager Randall Sarafa

to last splashdown test for its Orion spacecraft as the agency prepares to eventually send humans to Mars Scientists at NASA’s Langley facility used a pendulum and explosives to vault a test capsule into a pool of water at about 25 mph The 11-foot craft disappeared behind a bowl-shaped splash before bouncing buoyantly against safety netting The last time a NASA spacecraft parachuted into the ocean with astronauts on board was in the 1970s during the Apollo missions The rules of physics haven’t changed but the technology has grown dramatically NASA officials said The capsule’s heat shield is no longer steel but carbon fiber and titanium making it stronger and lighter Instead of a couch-like seat to hold all of the astronauts each will have his and her own custom-made chair to better protect the spine Computer simulations have shrunk the number of actual splashdown tests from 100 to 10 “A capsule hitting the water hasn’t changed” said Mark Baldwin an analyst with Lockheed Martin the prime contractor behind Orion “But what we know about it has” During Thursday’s test more than 500 instruments gauged aspects of the impact including the level of strain on heatshield and the aluminum cabin Crash test dummies were also inside to measure safety designs The speed of the craft simulated the failure of one of its three parachutes Splashdowns are back because they require fewer instruments than touching down on land and more space can be dedicated to supplies and other equipment said Ronny Baccus Orion’s structure system manager Orion is meant to expand human exploration in
