Medicines soon to get QR codes to check for authenticity

The move holds relevance as it will eliminate the challenge of counterfeit products or fake medicines being sold in India 

In a move to eliminate the challenge of counterfeit products or fake medicines, the centre may soon ask drugmakers to print or affix bar codes or QR codes on the packets of medicines to help find out and trace genuine drug products.

The move holds relevance as it will eliminate the challenge of fake medicines being sold in India.

The National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority (NPPA) had identified the list of 300 drugs, which include widely used medicines, such as painkillers, contraceptives, vitamins, blood-sugar, and hypertension medicines.

These brands would include the top-selling popular medicines in the Indian pharma market such as Allegra, Dolo, Augmentin, Saridon, Calpol, and Thyronorm among others.
