This is very important that controlling price of valuable medicines. As all we know medical and healthcare professionals making huge money but patients hardly getting any benefits for that. The rate of diabetes, heart diseases, Asthma, and other type old age disease are going increase day by. Taking daily medicine for such conditions are common and high rates of medicine cant affordable for poor or middle class people of India. In other case every home had a medicine kit that may contain paracetamol, painkiller (commonly diclofenac combination), Multivitamin, cough syrup etc. The kit should very economical to maintain as needed every time at home. If we accept generic prices then for that kit will cost very low prices. Sure the whole list of 348 drugs/medicine not come under DPCO 2012 but needed drugs may essential reduce there prices.

Hope the DPCO 2012 GR will come in exist with start of new year 2013. This is very beneficiary to all patients that taking daily life saving medicine. In the era increasing all daily needs price rates, medicine will give some concession.

Thank you

Allopathy medicines are much sought after by the patients and that gives free hand to the manufacturers of important drugs to charge prices as per their whims and fancies. Good that Government woke up to the need of price control on at least 348 important drugs which are mostly used by the patients across the country. Hope this move will be eye opener to other drug manufacturers who must restrain themselves from charging high price. Hope Medical Council of India also takes some checking measure in this regard.

Medical council of india should control the Extra higher MRPs of injectable items (mainly Antibiotics).These antibiotics are sold to a patient six to seven times higher of its actual purchase.for eg.Meropenem 1gm is supplied to Nursing homes or even a govt institution @ rate between Rs.300/ to 400/ and its
MRP range is Rs.2300/toRs.2700/.the private nursing homes cut the throat of general public.but neither medical council nor any govt office ask the manufacturers for printing these higher prices.it is a big offence.



Guest Author: Punit Bhatia     18 Jul 2013
Is it a good move to include some of them under DPCO 2012? The impact of this action may be that the manufacturing company may stop the production of these drugs and ultimately the availability of these good and effective medicines will be less in the market which can cause a lot of problem as the replacement of these drugs is very costly.
