A day-long bandh will be observed by city chemists on Friday in response to the country-wide strike called by the All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD).

The agitation intends to force the Centre to ensure there is no reduction in the trade margin as indicated in the National Pharmaceutical Pricing Policy (NPPP) released in December last year.

The proposed strike also seeks solutions for pharmacists-related issues,relief to the Drug Act Amendment 2008 and withdrawal of permission for foreign direct investment in pharmacy trade.
