This is a good step forward. This protects quality of medicines. Many medicines should be stored below 20 -25c to preserve required quality. But no one cares now.

I always welcome the minister. This is very good decision. But cost is very high for middle class pharmacist. Please reduce the tax for private health sector & bring the standard price control system for entire private heath service provider. It may reduce the state hospital crowd & can earn the foreign revenue from neighbour countries & Europe. Europe cataract patient are come to India for treatment.

Hmm..! simply price will be double.

There is no price control for drugs. Surely the poor patients will have to burden additional 20% for the cost of their medicine.

A step forward. However who will pay ultimately. The electricity bill of the Pharmacy also will have to pay buy the poor patient.

Ministry of Petrolium vs Ministry of Power
Ministry of Health vs Ministry of Power

Then the Pharmacy has to increase the profit margin on drugs to pay the additional electricity bill.
