3.     Classification of Bio-Technology Units:

 

3.1    BT units are classified into four groups depending on their focus field, namely (a) Human and Animal Health Bio-Tech products and processes unit, (b) Agricultural Bio-Tech products and processes unit, (c) Industrial and other Bio-Tech products and processes unit, (d) Composite Bio-Tech unit undertaking Bio-Tech activities covered under two or more of the above categories.  (In the case of Agricultural Bio-Tech units, some of the incentives under the Bio-Technology policy are distinct from those for other categories)

 

3.2    LOI / Registration as a BT unit under any of these categories requires that the unit's annual turnover of BT products (projected or proposed, depending on whether the unit is already established or not) should exceed 75% of its total annual turnover in value terms.  The activities / products under each of the first three categories are listed at Annexe-I.  This list is illustrative and not exhaustive.       

 

4.     Certification as Bio-Technology Unit :

       

        BT products and processes are varied, and it is not possible to draw up a comprehensive list in view of the nature and continuing new developments in this sector. Therefore, BT units which are certified as such, keeping in view the illustrative lists, by the designated Certifying Agencies mentioned at Annexe-II, would be considered for LOI/Registration as Bio-Tech unit. The formats for Certification are at Annexe-VI & VIII

       

5.     Registration Authorities:

 

5.1    The following agencies are designated as Registering Authorities for issue of Letter of Intent and Registration to different categories of BT units.

‘No.11’/ (the State Code for Maharashtra)

 

followed by

 

'District Code' ( As per Annexe-X )

 

followed by

 

the name of the issuing authority 'D.C.(Industries)', ’MIDC’,’JDI’/SIO or ‘DIC’, as the case may be,  with the name of the relevant Region / District in the case of the last two

 

followed by

the Serial No. in the relevant running  Register.

 

11.    SUBMISSION OF REPORTS:

Quarterly report of issue of LOI / Registration should be submitted by the registering authority to Joint Director of Industries (BT) in the prescribed format at Annexe-XI.

 

12.    GOVT OF INDIA REQUIRMENT FOR REGISTRATION OF INDUSTRIAL UNITS -

12.1 For the proposes of guidance, it may be mentioned that industries are defined and governed inter alia, by Govt. of India stipulations under the Industries (Development & Regulation) Act, 1951.

 

Govt. of India have notified three schedules under the Act:-

Schedule I -               Lists the industries reserved for public sector

Schedule II-        Lists the industries which are subject to compulsory licensing, i.e. an Industrial license has to be obtain from Ministry of Industries & Commerce, GOI.    

Schedule III -              Lists the articles reserved for small-scale sector

12.2  The list given in Schedule II follow the Indian Trade classification (Harmonious System).  For any Bio-Tech Product / activity that may be covered under the list, the manufacturer will have to apply to GOI for an Industrial License, whether it is In the Small or Large Scale.  

12.3  In respect of new Large scale projects for manufacture of products not covered by compulsory licensing (Schedule II) the only requirement is that the industrial undertaking shall file an Industrial Entrepreneur's Memorandum (IEM) in the prescribed form to the Secretariat for Industrial approvals (SIA) in the Ministry of Commerce & Industry.  The acknowledgment of the Memorandum from SIA should be enclosed with the application for BT LOI / Registration, in case the product/activity is covered under the Act.

12.4  Small Scale Industrial units in sector which do not requires compulsory license are not required to file Memoranda with SIA. However, it is likely that many of BT products / activities may be registrable as SSI.  Such units can consider getting themselves registered as SSI with Directorate of Industries or registering authority designated for the purpose, because such Registration is often useful for other purposes also.  However, such SSI registration is not mandatory.

12.5  In case of doubt, the Registration Authorities for BT units are advised to guide the application for BT LOI / Registration suitably.
