We provide a tried-and-tested, complete hardware and software solution for complying with the mandate and protecting your brands against counterfeiting.

Why QR Codes?

India's drug pricing authority has identified the top 300 brands of drugs. These brands are mandated to incorporate QR codes on their packaging, a significant step towards ensuring product authenticity.

Making the Supply Chain Transparent

QR codes provide visibility into the supply chain by providing instant access to vital data from manufacturer to consumer at every stage of the journey. Not only do they enhance transparency, but they also serve as a great way to engage distributors and retailers.

Protecting Patients

Perhaps most importantly, QR codes empower end consumers to scan and verify the authenticity of the medicines they purchase. This proactive approach safeguards patients from unknowingly using spurious or substandard medications, bolstering confidence in the pharmaceutical sector and creating a link to patients that can be used for engagement and support.

Verification Made Easy

PharmaSecure simplifies verification with a user-friendly process:


Scan the QR code on the product.


Access PharmaSecure's or the brand's customised verification webpage.

  • Serial Number
