The Central Government has started Pradhanmantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras’ with an aim to give economic relief to the poor people from buying costly medicines from the open market.

In Uttarakhand, Pradhanmantri Jan Aushadhi Kendras have been established at various places to give relief to the patients from the over-priced cost of medicines.

With the establishment of Pradhanmantri Jan Aushadhi Kendra in Bageshwar district hospital campus, people are getting life-saving medicines at cheaper rates. Now, patients are not forced to buy expensive medicines from the open market.

These Kendras have greatly benefitted the common man and people, in general, are happy with this scheme. A beneficiary Jyoti Joshi  of Bageshwar has expressed satisfaction over this scheme and said

Another beneficiary Leela Devi is also pleased with the scheme.

Earlier, the patients were bound to purchase expensive life-saving medicines of private companies. But after the establishment of Pradhanmantri Jan Aushadhi Kendra, people are getting cheaper medicines which are up to 60 percent of the earlier prices of the medicines. Mr. Narendra Rana has said that earlier it was difficult for him to get such expensive medicines, but this scheme has benefited him.

Another beneficiary Pooran Tiwari said that this scheme has provided relief to him and also to another common man thereby making their living easy.


The aim of the Pradhanmantri Jan Aushadhi Kendra scheme is to provide cheap medicines to the people so that they can afford these medicines easily. It was the vision of Prime Minister Narendra Modi that has led to the establishment of these centres even in the hilly areas of Uttarakhand providing relief and making the life of public much easier.
