Most pharma companies manufacture above products, search for jobs online and contact your seniors.

    1. if you are involved in manufacturing process of dosage form then you are eligible in every case.
      Testing experience certificate from approved laboratory is demanded in some states, but in most cases company certificate will also work, just mention in certificate that you was involved in testing of vitamins and related dosage forms.
      Please also note that upsc and some states do not ask for mandatory experience.
