Abstract

Generic Drug Distribution in India-Issues and Challenges

Mishra R and Sathyaseelan B

Indian Pharmaceutical industry is worldwide famous for its export of generic pharma products. India is one of the major generic distributors all across the world. There are many famous pharmaceutical companies which contribute in the production of generic drugs such as sunpharma, cipla, Dr. Reddy, Lupin etc. After China, India is the second largest producer of generic drugs. We have good production of them but still there are so many issues and challenges due to which Indian population is still struggling to find out the generic medication easily accessible to them. Even doctors are not prescribing generic drugs. There are few government regulatory bodies which take care of the availability of the generic medicines and try to make them available to the Indian population especially to the ones who are below poverty line.
