AUROBINDO Pharma manufacturing unit number 9 is located near Sangareddy town which is the head quarters of Medak district. It is comparatively nearer to Hyderabad than Medak. Our journey started @school of management studies, University of Hyderabad at around 10 in the morning and reached the pharma unit around 11:30am.
