Everyone please vote on this important issue. I believe all premium devices should be available in India but they should be selling at genuine prices and not in black. Urge all Members to vote here and Legal Metrology people must ensure hospitals arent overcharging and MRPs are published always. Do vote everyone.... more

In most of the cases MRPs are heavily inflated and than discounts are offered to the consumers to lure and make them fool and therefore there is no use of demanding for such things, that too, when the government itself is not honest enough to ensure strict adherence of respective laws by the manufacturers & traders. more  
looks like they did not have a choice and identifying them with the customs is never going to be easy if specific ones are mentioned more  
The govt has shifted it's policy. all medical devices are going to be identified as DRUGS from April 1 i suppose. Apart from expanding the scope of regulation to ensure safet ..

There is no government department which looks into profitering more  
similar to stent all life saving drugs govt should ask the pharmaceutical companies to manufacture them here so that it will be available at reasonable cost and in that way it will be good for make in india campaign and generate employment and save lot of foreign exchange more  
Govt.has tried many times n directed pharma companies ,doctors to reduce prices, n only manufacture ,prescribe Generic medicines , but the strong hold of pharma companies n doctors never ever agreed n follow it.
Even the doctors were asked to prescribe medicines by it's Generic names that to written in clear bold letters not in unreadable hand writings, that is also not followed. The MNC n local pharma companies have ruled the world.
Sir, that's why govt started opening medicine shops namely, Pradhanmantri Jan aushadh Kendra's thought the medicines are very cheap but there is some element of doubt ,whether such medicines have right content in weight or units

This shows that pharma companies ,doctors both are not obliged to follow govt.directives.

Day by day the medical treatments n services are becoming more n more costlier , the Mediclaim insurance policy business has made it even still costlier. Who can afford it?

Simply copying Western countries in indian socio - economic conditions is not a wise decision.
Ministers, the sr.babus can get treated abroad at public money but what about service class people. Let there be many yojanaa like Ayushman or Maa, but it is all like patch work.

Had govt extended the our own medical schemes ESIS, covering all the citizens just by contributing by individual rupees 10- 20 per month, we would not have to dependent on FOREIGN MEDICAL INSURANCE COMPANIES , who are simply drains money from individual ,increasing premium, cap on age bar, limiting benefits n all other one sided conditions.

Neither the citizens or consumer forums or Govt taking care of it. Just simply formed a Authority like IRDA, which is Tiger without teeth n nails.

Jai Hind more
