Generic Drugs

Read in Hindi
They are drugs which have the same chemical composition as branded drugs. They are sold under their chemical name instead of the branded name and are usually cheaper. There has been a movement in recent years to bolster the generic drug scenario in the country and the Govt has even promised to provide them free at public health facilities. Thanks to lack of patent laws that don’t recognise intellectual property rights, India is the leading manufacturer of generic drugs in the world and many developing countries are dependent on Indian pharmaceuticals for drugs to treat various diseases including HIV-AIDS, malaria and even cancer.
