SII has partnered with five global pharma companies including AstraZeneca to produce 1 billion doses of its vaccine candidate – half of which it has pledged to India.

question; will the government of India have 80,000 crores available, over the next one year? Because that's what @MoHFW_INDIA needs, to buy and distribute the vaccine to everyone in India. This is the next concerning challenge we need to tackle.  @PMOIndia," Poonawalla tweeted. 
SII has partnered with five global pharma companies including AstraZeneca to produce one billion doses of its vaccine candidate – half of which it has pledged to India; besides partnering with Russia’s Gamaleya Research Institute to manufacture the Sputnik V vaccine.
SII presently produces 1.5 billion doses of polio, measles and influenza vaccines for 170 countries.
Earlier on September 14, Poonawalla had warned of a shortage of a COVID-19 vaccine for all till 2024 at least. He had said that it would take four to five years until "everyone on the planet" gets vaccinated.
Poonawalla had estimated a need for close to 15 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine if a two-dose programme – similar to the measles vaccinations drive – is initiated.
