Speaking on the occasion, Health and Family Affairs Minister, Ghulam Nabi Azad said that Indian pharma sector has witnessed a phenomenal growth in the recent years and is considered worldwide as the source of good quality, low cost generic drugs.

He said that pharmacists cannot only act as dispensers of good quality and cheap drugs but also act as watchdogs to counter the menace of spurious drugs in the country.

He encouraged the pharmacists to join the teams working in the rural areas.

He also announced that the Health Ministry will reward 12 crore Rupees to the contractor who builds the recently announced six All India Institutes of Medical Sciences in the country before the announced deadline.
