Set up by the Union Ministry of Chemicals and Fertilizers, the authority fixes, revises and enforces prices of various controlled drugs. It also levies and collects penalties from manufacturers if customers are overcharged. It also monitors prices of decontrolled drugs to keep them affordable to the needy.

The fresh order supersedes that of March 2, 2016, February 26, 2015 and December 10, 2014 on formulation packs. The ceiling prices are exclusive of local taxes where ever applicable.

Among the medicines whose prices have been revised include glucose and sodium chloride injections and their combined injections. The pharma firms whose drug prices have been revised lower are Abbot Healthcare, Adcock Ingram Healthcare, Alembic, Bennet Pharmaceuticals, Cadila Pharma, Cipla and others.
