Indian government set to colour code generic medicines

As part of an effort to promote low cost medicines, the Indian government has announced plans to colour code generic drugs.

It is hoped the colour coding will make it easier for consumers to differentiate between generic medicines and branded versions of the same drugs.

Apart from colour coding the government is also considering using symbols to make generic medicines more easily identifiable.

The move comes as the government pursues various strategies aimed at promoting the use of generic drugs.
