Abstract

Demonetarization of currency notes of five hundred rupees and thousand rupees denominations is hailed because of surgical strike against black money, terrorist funding and also corruption. On the comparative lines the Government of India has introduced Jan Aushadhi scheme to give jolt to the uncontrolled medicine prices across all therapeutic category of medicines in India. Although brand medicines in India appear cheap when compared with international prices, however the brand medicines in India are expensive in comparison with generic medicines. The brand medicines despite being expensive are preferred over generic medicines by the prescribers due to exhaustive marketing practices by the manufactures. Although generic medicines are available at affordable prices they are not preferred over brand medicines. The price sensitivity for medicine appears to be very low. Generic medicines are less popular for various reasons, primarily due to marketing techniques of luring the prescribers brand medicines. The medicine prices are bound to get down to the ground levels when enactment of Jan Aushadhi Act is implemented in true spirit with a strong political will.
