generic_drug_belgaumKarnataka government has teamed up with State Cooperative Consumer Federation to set up Janatha Bazar generic drug stores across the state to make available affordable drugs to the poor patients in the state.

The initiative is on similar lines of the Department of Pharmaceuticals (DoP)’s Jan Aushadhi generic stores which was launched in 2008 to make available affordable drugs to the poor patients. The state government has decided to sell generic drugs at 50 per cent discount on maximum retail price by opening up the generic drugs stores across hospitals coming under the medical education department 

The drugs which are being made available at the outlets will be for all diseases and disorders covering asthma, anti hyper tension, cancer, cardiology, nephrology, ophthalmology, dermatology and Parkinson’s disease.

The Janatha Bazar generic drug stores will sell medicines at 50 per cent of the MRP. This move would be a boon to the general public especially the poor patients.

  1. AKURI T-4(Rimspicin, Ethambutol, Hydrochloride) is it available inJanta bazar, generic medical store,Bind hospital, Belagavi may please be informed.

  2. It’s surprising that such important information is not known to me. Then think of poor people,for whom,this type of information is very important. It should be made public to every one.Belgaum,which has got population of more than 6 lacs,has just 1 store.

  3. CITY : BELGAUM
    Population : 6Lakh plus
    STOREs : only ONE

    TOTAL INJUSTICE, HUMILIATION, DISGUST, INCONVENIENCE TO TRAVEL WHEN ILL OR PROBLEM TO CARE GIVERS

  4. Public really appreciates such moves of government.

    But government needs to advertise about such facilities very well.

    I thank AAB for doing a bit from its end.

    Thanks & regards,
    Praveen.
