The UT administration had decided to restart the Jan Aushadhi Kendras at Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH), Sector 32, and GMSH-16 in June this year.
The centres provide high-quality generic medicines at comparatively cheaper rates than branded medicines. Two similar centres are already operational at PGIMER.
Earlier operated by the Red Cross Society, the two Jan Aushadhi stores at GMCH-32 and GMSH-16 were shut down amid the Covid-19 pandemic after the organisation expressed its inability to operate them.
