‘Generic India’ founded by Vikas Yadav provides medicine at minimal cost
We tend to think too much and feel too little. We need compassion more than machinery; we need goodness and gentleness more than cleverness. Life will be violent without these values, and all will be lost. But In this tough time of the pandemic, some people are keeping humanity alive and one of them is Vikas Yadav, founder and CEO of ‘Generic India,’ a pharmaceutical Govt recognized startup.
Vikas came up with this idea when the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 saw a rise and many people who did not receive medication suffered or received medicine at a very high cost. He did some research on drug prices and found that they were very low price. Also noticed that there are two types of medication available: generic and branded.
He saw that India exports generic medicines to 200 countries; however, although generic medicines are widely available in India at a low cost, some retailers and other sellers charge a high price. The organisation focuses on people with cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and others who take medications daily.
The company aims to offer high-quality medication to the common man at a low cost as compared to market prices and to ensure that customers receive safe and reliable medicine.
Generic India offers up to a 90% discount on all generic medications in all categories (Cardio, Diabetic, Paediatrics, Gyne, Derma, ENT, ortho). They have over 1500 items in their portfolio. All products are produced in WHO and GMP-certified facilities and checked by the NABL Lab.
If one wants to take advantage, “Generic India” can be found in places like Hisar, Gurgaon, Jhansi, Indore, Jabalpur, Bhopal, Satana, and others. Also, they have finalised several franchises in 17+ cities across India, in states such as Haryana, UP, MP, Delhi, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Bihar, Assam, and others.
By the end of 2021, they have 1000+ aggregator stores and are getting 10+ stores per region. They intend to open 1000+ stores in the first step, with a goal of 100 cities.
Vikas says that “ We will do all we can to contribute to the creation of a safe country.”
