Welcome to yet another edition of our newsletter.
Earlier this month, India introduced GST, a single nationwide tax for Goods and Services to replace a number of different taxes and duties in the country. It is expected to be beneficial to the Indian pharmaceutical sector in the long run as it aims to simplify tax structure and bring operational efficiency. However, Patients can still buy essential medicines at the pre-GST MRP as it will take nearly two months for new batches of medicines with revised prices to arrive at pharmacies. Catch the complete story in this issue of The Prescription.
