The statement said the revamped website is compliant with the guidelines issued by the department of administrative reforms and public grievances, as it has user-centric content, responsive pages, cloud environment and is bilingual – being available in both Hindi and English.
Ahir said the revamped website is a good effort to provide information to the people and the pharmaceutical industry through a single window.
“The website will help in obtaining feedback from the people which will help the department in taking corrective steps, if required,” Ahir said.
He added that the government is committed to make available medicines at affordable rates and adoption of technology will facilitate the process.
