Jan Aushadhi

What is Jan Aushadhi Yojana?

Jan Aushadhi Yojana is a campaign run by the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Government of India, whose goal is to make available high-quality generic medicines in India at reasonable or cheap prices to the public. At present, more than 85 Jan Aushadhi stores are being operated all over India.

In which more than 361 types of medicines are available.

In the coming financial year 2017-18, a target has been set to open about 3000 Jan Aushadhi stores in the country.

By generic medicine or generic medicine, we mean medicine without brand. However, these medicines are as effective and safe as branded medicines in terms of therapeutic value. But their cost is much cheaper than the branded medicines. BPPI (Bureau of Pharma PSUs of India) controls the purchase and sale of these medicines. BPPI has been established by the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Government of India.
