Message From the CEO


Shri Sachin Kumar Singh, IRS


Irony, even after 70 years of Independence, around 40% of population are able to afford branded medicines. The branded medicine’s market in India is of 1 lakh 20 thousand crores. It is irony that 6 out of 10 people of the population do not have access to the branded medicines. However, the bright side of the picture is, India is one of the leading countries to export world class generic medicines to around 200 countries. Out of every 6 medicines consumed in the world is from India. Look at the dichotomy, on one hand 6 out of 10 persons do not have access to medicines, whereas India is within the first four countries of the World, producing quality generic medicines and exporting to other countries. Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana (PMBJP) is a scheme designed to bridge the above dichotomy. It is dedicated to, provide quality medicines at an affordable price to every citizen of the country, irrespective of all cast, creed and economy. The intention is to provide health security to our countrymen, at the earliest, as soon as possible.

Though launched on 25th November, 2008 with the first store at Amritsar in Punjab, as on 31st January, 2019, 4800+ Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Kendras are functional spread over 35 States/UTs of our country.

BPPI is now offering more than 800+ drugs and 154 surgical & consumables under the Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Pariyojana, covering almost all major therapeutic groups such as Antidiabetic, Cardiovascular system, Respiratory system, Genital-urinary system, Central Nervous system, Anti-neoplastic and immune-modulating agents etc.

Products are quality assured, since procured from WHO-GMP certified organization and CPSUs. Each batch is sent for testing at NABL, and only after clearance from the NABL, products are released for human consumption through exclusive supply chain network through Jan Aushadhi Kendras.

Our Supply Chain services is aided by strong software-based solution for auto dispatches to stores in time to come. We have established a state of the art cold chain facilitated ultra-modern central ware house for maintaining integrity of quality.

My dream is that in the coming years, PMBJP shall provide the complete spectrum of Health care products and services. Success of any project is mainly dependent on the commitment of the team members, the trust between them and the transparency in the functioning of the organization.

I feel really proud to be associated with Jan Aushadhi!
