* This work sheet prepared by T.Srikrishna gives estimated prices of a sample range of commonly used drugs
currently not under Price Control. The estimated prices are costed using DPCO NPPA norms of conversion, packing
and losses.Column 7 gives the extent to which prices in the market are above DPCO norms if the latter were
applicable. For example, Amloguard by Pfizer is priced 28.82 times what would have been its price if it were under
price control. Drug prices of leading brands from CIMS, April 2004.
