The primary function of PMRUs is to assist NPPA in monitoring of prices of drugs, ensuring availability of drugs and raising consumer awareness. They act as collaborating partners of NPPA with information gathering mechanism at the grass-roots level.
They will render necessary technical assistance to both the NPPA and the respective State Drug Controllers of States/ Union Territories. PMRUs will also ensure that the benefits of the DPCO (revised from time to time) trickle down at the grassroots level. NPPA, under its Central Sector Scheme named Consumer Awareness, Publicity and Price Monitoring (CAPPM), has already set up of PMRUs in 25 States/ Union Territories.
