He said the vaccine supply is expected to reach 50 lakhs by June and vaccine production in India is expected to start by August.

The Indian Ambassador to Russia confirmed the current plan that over 850 million doses of the Sputnik vaccine would eventually be produced in India. He said that about 65-70% of Sputnik produced anywhere in the world would be from India.

Third, the Russian side will transfer the technology to the Indian company and the Indian company will produce it entirely in India. All these three phases put together will be about 850 million doses,” said D Bala Venkatesh Verma
