In a report on pharmaceutical marketing practices compiled by a public health group Support for Advocacy and Training to Health Initiatives (Sathi), medical representatives (MRs) talked of the tremendous pressure exerted by companies on them through high sales targets.

They also revealed how training for MRs is focused less on technical knowledge and more on salesmanship and “management of customer (read doctors) relations”. The report is based on in depth interviews with 50 MRs, areas sales managers,
allopathic and Ayush doctors and pharma executives from six cities conducted last year.
Though the code of ethics of the Medical Council of India bars doctors from accepting any gifts, cash, travel facilities or hospitality from pharma companies, there are no laws to deal with such corrupt marketing practices.
According to the MRs, hardly 10-20% doctors follow the MCI code of ethics, while the rest accept or even demand ´incentives´ to prescribe products of a company. The most common inducement is the sponsoring of doctors for conferences.
In many highvalue deals, such as instalments on the purchase of a car, the company even threatens the doctor if the targeted business (a certain number of prescriptions for a drug) is not achieved, revealed MRs.
The report revealed how cash bribes have changed to petrocards, credit cards or e-vouchers for online purchases.
MRs visit and promote allopathic drugs to ayurvedic and homeopathic doctors and even rural medical practitioners as long as they help boost sales. According to the report, pharma executives closely monitored business brought in by doctors on whom they spent money.

Govt only sees the fault of common people/weaker mass. Cannot take action on the Govt officers who are the master mind of bribery. Every department has gone super courrupt. Those who are making rules, they are making faulty rules so that they can use it. None of Indian Govt Department is honest. That´´s making India ´´s pictures so miserable. And the truth is It has no END. People complain when they lose, and everyone is losing but still waiting their turn do a corruption. And for this political parties exists.”
