When ready, the device will cost around 7,500 (claimed) and thus will prove to be a critical resource as the country is fighting through the shortage of lifesaving medical devices. Its cost will be the key USP and hence it can be made available throughout the medical centres across India which lack the required inventory to fight the on-going health crisis.

The company has also announced in the past that it is working alongside an existing ventilator manufacturer and two major public sector firms in order to get assistance in the development of the final design of Mahindra's respiratory device.

In other reports, Mr. Goyenka on Saturday also announced that Mahindra and Mahindra will produce 'Face Shields' for healthcare workers who are at the forefront in the fight against COVID-19.
