India : Government plans to make barcodes mandatory for all medicines sold in India

The Government is planning to make barcodes mandatory for all medicines sold in India with the aim of putting a stop to India’s growing reputation as a source of fake medicines. Even though a system is already in place for medical devices and exported medicines, to guarantee that they are authentic and ensure they can be tracked, the Health Ministry is also planning to take a tough stance for the domestic market, despite opposition from medicine manufacturers.
