 The following steps have been taken to ensure purchase of medicines under CGHS in a transparent manner: 

1.      CGHS procures its bulk supply of formulary medicines (both branded and generic) through the Medical Store Organization (MSO), which is under the administrative control of DGHS. Addl. Directors, CGHS of different cities place their indents for formulary drugs to the MSO which are supplied by MSO to various CGHS units through their respective Govt. Medical Stores Depots (GMSDs). 

2.      The procurement of Life Saving Drugs is made through a rate enquiry in the form of sealed quotations directly from the manufacturers for the life saving drugs and not through their distributors or dealers. 

3.      The medicines which are not available in wellness centres are being procured through authorized local chemist appointed for each wellness centres separately through E-Tender system with the best discounts. 

Orders have been issued on 19.11.2014 for the opening of CGHS wellness centres in 12 cities namely Raipur, Shimla, Itanagar, Aizawl, Agartala, Imphal, Kohima, Gangtok, Panaji, Gandhi Nagar, Puduchery and Indore.
