Rising Prices of Medicines

has anyone else noticed the steadily increasing prices of medicines?

My mothers eyedrops which used to cost Rs. 36 till 6 months ago, now cost 55. Vertin which used to cost 85 till couple of years ago became 120 in 2020 and this week i got it for 132.
Crocin also more expensive.

Why are medicines becoming expensive like this. Is the Govt aware ?

Can a survey be done on rising prices of medicines. Will everyone in the circle kindly share their experiences? more

It is observed that there is lot of scope to control the prices of medicines. Govt must intervene and take corrective measures. more  
A minimum of 10% to 20% rise in the price of medicines are observed with a gap of 6 month. Medicine are being used for emergencies and it is a necessity, hence no one raises their voice. There should be some restrictions, as the price rise on medicines are being shared by the pharmaceutical companies with doctors and medicine retailers as a tips for sale. more  
All medical pharm a companies are looting the public. Most of the time many meds are not available in Ian oushadi shops..we are compelled to buy from medical shops. Helplessness. more  
what are jan aushadhi shops started by Govt. for , why Indians are not well informed ?? the medicines here cost 10% to the original brands with same quality more  
Hi all, can you please send me the address of the PM Jan Arogya Shop in Pune Camp and can you let me know if they sell allopathic meds as I need those for my diabetes. Thank you. more
