Quality generic medicine at affordable price
Underscoring once again its commitment to common man, MSIL ventured into pharmaceutical sector in 2015. In order to make quality medicines available for all, particularly the poor and underprivileged, Govt. of India has initiated ‘Jan Aushadhi’ scheme by opening ‘Jan Aushadhi medical stores’ all across the country for selling ‘generic drugs’. The objective of the Government is to ensure ‘availability of quality medicine at affordable price’ since branded drugs are too expensive for the poor to afford.
Govt. of Karnataka has entrusted the task of opening Jan Aushadhi stores at Taluka and District Govt. Hospitals to MSIL. The department of Health and Family welfare is acting as Nodal department and as of now, Jan Aushadhi stores operating at various hospital premises.
