Majority of Indian pharma stocks and MNC pharma stocks are trading positive.

As per the financial daily, Cipla Ltd, has asked the government to revoke five patents of a respiratory drug Onbrez of Novartis. Cipla has asked the Department of Industrial Policy & Promotion (DIPP) to cancel the patents of Novartis on the ground that the Swiss company has held these patents for six years without making the medicine locally. Further, the company has also failed to import the required quantity of the drug in Indian markets which has also caused shortage of the said drug. Recently, Cipla has also launched the generic version of indacaterol with the brand name, Unibrez in the Delhi market and will be launching soon in the other markets as well. Cipla has launched this drug at one -fifth price of the innovator's drug. The outcome is still awaited.
