IS DPCO Really That effective?

Posted by:

DPCO (Drug Price Control Order) has been updated once again. This time, as pointed in Times Of India, the issues have not been addressed satisfactorily.

Though the intention is right, the implementation is not. A few products have price control for one dosage form, whereas no price control for the other dosage forms.

This would lead to unfair practices. If you were to put a dosage of 1gm under price control, and 500mg out of it, then the patient would be prescribed 2 units of 500mg, instead of 1 unit of 1gm.

Hence the purpose of price control would be defeated.
