The Telangana-based citizens have, in complaints sent to the Prime Minister’s Office, the Union health ministry and the pharmaceuticals department, expressed that manufacturers print “abnormally high” maximum retail prices (MRPs) enabling excessive profit margins of around 10-20% above MRP. Medicines include anti-asthma medications to pain-killers to anti-acidity agents.Under India’s Drugs (Prices Control) Order, 2013, only the set of so-called “scheduled medicines” are under price control and not non-scheduled medicines which constitute 80% of pharmaceutical market in India.
