Overpriced medicines

Published Dec 22, 2012 11:03pm

I recently bought a medicine from the pharmacies of three different private hospitals. When I inquired a medical store about the price of the medicine, I was shocked to know that the injection was sold for Rs115 at the pharmacies while the same was available for Rs88 at the medical store.

The authorities concerned should take action against this malpractice.
