The third store will be launched in Gurgaon on February 4, followed by the other launches in Mohali and Panchkula on February 11, according to department of pharmaceuticals officials.
Further, the project has received good response from several NGOs, public health groups and other organisations from across the country, informed the officials.
Generic drugs are medicines marketed without a brand name. However, they are identical to their branded counterpart in terms of dose, strength, route of administration, safety, efficacy and intended use.
