                NEW PROJECT OF HMDA “MEDTECH VALLEY” LAUNCHED
               In the valedictory function of Bio Asia 2010 Conference held on 06.02.2010,
Shri E.S.L Narasimhan, His Excellency, the Governor of Andhra Pradesh, unveiled the logo of
“MedTech Valley” to be developed by HMDA, in the outskirts of Hyderabad as a cluster for
manufacturing of Medical devices and diagnostic equipments. In the first phase, an area of 200 Acres
will be developed by HMDA, adjacent to the BITS (Pilani), Hyderabad Campus and Army Dental
College. This cluster would attract investors from India, as well as abroad, in manufacturing of Medical
devices and equipments etc. and would provide world class infrastructure for the growth of this sector in
our State. Located at Jawaharnagar near Shameerpet the area is in close proximity to the Biotech
cluster in Genome Valley, which would help in achieving synergies between the Medical devices cluster
and the Life Science Cluster.    Several MedTech manufacturing companies such as, Johnson and
Johnson, Siemens have already evinced interest to invest in India and this initiative of HMDA makes
Andhra Pradesh the front-runner in this sector. A total area of 1200 Acres has been earmarked for this
purpose, out of the land already available with HMDA in Jawaharnagar. Social infrastructures, such as,
affordable housing, educational institutions, hospitals and facilities for medical tourism, as well as
connectivity through Outer Ring Road would also support the project.

occasion assured assistance from Government of India in building infrastructure and common facilities
for this sector in „MedTech Valley‟. His Excellency the Governor asked Shri B.P.Acharya, Metropolitan
