Soon Medicines will be available at 80% discount in Doon

Pradhan Mantri Aushadhi Kendra will soon be opened in Doon Hospital

There’s a good news for the Doonites as soon Pradhan Mantri Aushadhi Kendra will be opened in Doon Hospital which will offer medicines at 80% discount, way cheaper than that offered by Jan Aushadhi Kendra. The drug centre will offer allopathic medicines at cheap rates to the poor people. The Jan Aushadhi Kendra is already operating in the hospital and offers generic medicines at low price to the patients.

Few months ago, PM announced that Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Kendra will be established in every district hospital

On Monday, the team responsible for establishing the PM Jan Aushadhi Kendra visited the hospital and told that the PM drug centre will provide medicines at 80% discount to the patients. In an interview, Dr. KK Tamta Medical Superintendent at Doon Hospital told that the scheme has been launched by the centre but the orders haven’t been passed yet. Whenever the order will be released the area for the drug centre will be provided.

The decision is likely to face obstacles

It is likely that the Medical Counselling of India can raise their brows regarding the rules for the PM Aushadhi Kendra. The Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadi Kendra or the state’s drug centre is for the district and the base hospitals or for the hospitals that are functioning under the Health Department.
