NO!!! Thats not acceptable, even after reprocessing u will get a fresh Mfg date but Exp date will remain the same. Reprocessing is only recommended when the product parameters are not meeting to the predetermined specifications at any manufacturing step.

Hi Vasu,

In pharmaceutical industry all materials should be given fixed shelf life to use, in your case If you wish to do reprocess to increase physical appearance of your old manufactured product you can goahead, but you should to meet all predetermined relaese specification.
Shelf life of your product cant be change and till now no provision go beyond claim vendor claimed shelf life.
