In franchise segment we only company that have all of these range in single platform. You know very well that in this world pollution is increasing day by day and this scenario we have to plan awareness for asthma and regularly updated treatments for a better respiratory system in human body.

What are the major issues this is dealing now a days?

Sandeep Gokhru: Major issue is that now a days Government and so many social groups promoting generics. But in India there are only few Manufacturers those are maintaining best quality in generic segment.

If any person have some problem than that patient will go to doctor to solve that problem than doctor prescribe medicine and he/she have to purchase and cure, that should be the procedure. But we are giving a good amount to doctor for fees and at the time of buying medicine we take substitute like generics or any sub stranded medicine for saving the money and there are no results and patients problem is maintained.
