Most of teh companies are wetern based and any action taken on them has a reflex action on indian firms situated there.
the pricing is so bad , that in one of teh episodes of stayamev jayetey it was showed that a medicine that could cost rs.150 was sold at rs.400 , which the patient could not afford and lost her life due to no medicines.
despite thsi , we indians are treated as cattle class. or maybe dog class. the government apathy is such they feel , you are dg class , you keep barking , while we keep stashing money away in lucrative shores
