Out of 46 amoxicillin products, 28.26percent were found to be out of Indian Pharmacopoeia specifications, including 13.04percent products which were of substandard quality. Out of 32 diclofenac productspercent 34.37percent were found to be out of Indian Pharmacopoeia specification including 15.62percent substandard. Such an extent might cause further morbidity and even resistance. And the circumstances may become worst if the prices are high and quality could not be controll
