Fake drugs is a big problem, the multi-billion dollar highly profitable industry have lurked many counterfeit medicines to flood the market. And unlike other "product duplicates", medicine fakes pose a greater threat to human lives. If this is not enough, checking a medicine for genuineness is not something easily achievable at a users level - as it needs complex analysis with a suitably equipped laboratory.
Technology has always came to our rescue when needed, and to fight the counterfeit medicines we now have a tech solution at hand. Dubbed PharmaSecure the barcoding technology allows consumers to verify the genuineness of medicine purchased by sending a unique identification code found on the product package to PharmaSecure by SMS (+91-9901099010), web, voice or mobile application. Within seconds, PharmaSecure sends a response to the consumer confirming that the product is authentic or alerting the consumer if it is suspect or expired.
The PharmaSecure system is being successfully working in India, and is expected to soon get supporters world-over.
I couldn't understand which code is meant here, is it the batch number or the License number or else?.
If bar code is considered, then many drug packs, sheets or bottles lacks the bar code on it. Even if there's a bar code then we need a special scanner/reader.....you know.

Due to the lack of public awareness duplicate medicines are sold easily all over India. And to stop such crimes Indian government should implement the rules like medicines manufacturing company should print manufactured date and expiry date should be printed backside of the medicine batch like foreign countries. But its common to see only in India its stamped and easy to be erased with body spray, perfume or any kind of liquid so the expired medicine can be resold again. So please share this news with your family and friends to save lives and if you have any ideas or email id to contact the concerned authority please send to my email id.....Thanks
