I am going to make a few assumptions. Since you said this is in IIS, you probably can't create .Net or JavaScript code to handle the redirect (i.e., all redirects must be done using some regexes in a configuration file). Also, I assume the number of underscores in the "mysite.com" URL is variable.

I don't think you can do this with one redirect, but you can create several. For example, you can start off with these (create more to handle more underscores):
^http://www\.mysite\.com/manufacturers/(?<MAN>[a-z0-9]+)_[0-9]+/(?<PRO>[a-z9-9]+)_[0-9]+\.htm$
http://www\.newsite\.co\.in/free-msds-download/${MAN}/${PRO}/

^http://www\.mysite\.com/manufacturers/(?<MAN1>[a-z0-9]+)_(?<MAN2>[a-z0-9]+)_[0-9]+/(?<PRO>[a-z0-9]+)_[0-9]+\.htm$
http://www\.newsite\.co\.in/free-msds-download/${MAN1}-${MAN2}/${PRO}/

^http://www\.mysite\.com/manufacturers/(?<MAN>[a-z0-9]+)_[0-9]+/(?<PRO1>[a-z9-9]+)_(?<PRO2>[a-z9-9]+)_[0-9]+\.htm$
http://www\.newsite\.co\.in/free-msds-download/${MAN}/${PRO1}-${PRO2}/

^http://www\.mysite\.com/manufacturers/(?<MAN1>[a-z0-9]+)_(?<MAN1>[a-z0-9]+)_[0-9]+/(?<PRO1>[a-z9-9]+)_(?<PRO2>[a-z9-9]+)_[0-9]+\.htm$
http://www\.newsite\.co\.in/free-msds-download/${MAN1}-${MAN2}/${PRO1}-${PRO2}/


That is simple enough, but that could end up being a lot of rules if you have a large range of underscores (e.g., "the_name_of_some_long_product" and "the_name_of_some_long_manufacturer"). Alternatively, you can redirect all of the "mysite" URL's that match the pattern you want to a single URL on "newsite" that takes the original URL as a query string. The page on newsite can then parse the query string and perform a redirect using C# or VB.Net code, which gives you more flexibility than a configuration file.

Note: the above regexes are untested and may contain mistakes, but you get the idea.
