Pulse Oximeters - Price Cap and standardisation

we need to cap prices of pulse oximeters. Prices seem to be increasing exponentially. Also any quality checks / criteria - guidance for the common person using these devices? Does bis have standards or can they develop quickly?

LocalCircles please escalate to Govt more

ISO 80601-2-61:2017 , I understand from the net is available for this medical equipment not needed by common man. I am sure that Specialist Pulmonologists and hospitals must be purchasing equipment confirming to ISO standard. Thus, there may not be an urgent need for Indian standard. more  
Yes maam I agree with you what you said is right there must be a mechanism.

Yes! I agree.Many such products have an inflated MRP and the shopkeeper gets it at more than 40 - 50% profit. The cost may be around Rs.100/ when the MRP is Rs.250/-.
The dealer is given high margin because he has the choice of stocking and pushing the product of his choice.
For Medicine a Pharmacist gets 20% on MRP. That is why many of them can afford to give 5 - 10% to a customer. more  
Is it necessary to bye a Pulse Oximeter? If one feels unwell or problem in brething must consult a doctor and don't depend on home testing. more  
The term "pulse oximeters" needs to be explained elaborately. more
