Dear Prof. Tandon,

You are underestimating the enormous attrition rate in pharma industry. The current rate including manufacturing, R&D and Marketing is 30-40 %. However, out of these three fields highest is of Marketing and lowest is in manufacturing. This is based on facts and figures.

Hello vishal, The pharma industry has a great impact in the economy of our country. Even though the Attrition touches the pharma. The industry has the capacity to survive. Sorry to say this i donot have the statistical data with me. But the HR productivity in pharma industry is good when compared with other manfacturing industries.
