Government is planning a mobile application that will provide all information related to pricing and availability of medicines as well as addressing consumer grievances, as per reports.
"There are also plans to come up with a mobile application, which provides all information related to prices and availability of medicines and at the same time make the consumers aware about spurious medicines," said Fertiliser Minister Mr Ananth Kumar, in a statement.
He further mentioned that the government is committed to regulating the prices of medicines that are on the National List of Essential Medicines.
The minister inaugurated a web portal 'Pharma Jan Samadhan', a web portal for consumer grievances related to pricing and availability of medicines.
