The right for the right patient in the right dose by the right route at the right time: this golden rule sums up the ideal health care system. The availability of drugs at a much affordable rate is due to the generic drugs, one can save nearly 40 per cent by purchasing a generic product. However, certain drugs do not have generic versions yet. Clinics and medical practitioners prescribe these medicines higher to the other brand-name drugs. The central govt. was decided to make healthcare affordable as stated in the National Health Policy 2017. About 2/3rd of the expenses are incurred on medicines. These medicines are as effective as branded medicines. The initiative of the govt. and Medical Council of India by making it compulsory for doctors to write generic medicines has raised many concerns related to these drugs availability, quality with low price. The govt. needs to make these drugs easily available, strengthen quality control and educate doctors on benefits of using these drugs.
