Significance of NPPA

  • It is important to fix the prices of certain important drugs so that they can be easily affordable and accessible to every citizen of the county and the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Authority ensures the same. 

  • It mandates that no supplier can sell a drug more than its Maximum Retail Price (MRP).  

  • NPPA played a very crucial role during the pandemic time in the country as many medical suppliers were selling drugs at higher prices which were unaffordable for many. 

  • Thus, this authority fixed the prices so that they could be availed easily.
