One of the ways to market a new product is to change the old product. The rapid decline in consumption of the eggs over the last 50 year is one of the most challenging problems the industry is facing today. The high cholesterol content in eggs is a major contributing factor. This problem can be minimized by using designer eggs. This review article throws light on what a designer egg is all about and how it can be obtained, the advantages of designer egg over simple egg. Besides designer egg, this article also provides information about the specialty egg and fertile eggs. Designer eggs are those in which the content has been modified from standard egg.

Abstract:
The Pharmaceutical industry represents one of the India’s strength.  The regulation of pharmaceuticals in India is generally seen to be in need of reform, and has been the subject of many official commissions since 1995. Most commentators agree that the state should intervene to prevent untrammeled market forces leading to citizens’ suffering, because adequate information about the costs and benefits of different pharmaceuticals is inaccessible to most users. But in India, a wide range of stakeholders must be considered before changes can be made to the regulatory framework.
