Although all types of heart rings are sold in the Indian market for only 40 thousand rupees or around 55 thousand rupees, they used to be sold for more than 100,000 rupees in various establishments in the country. To stop such anarchy, the drug administration department recently fixed the prices. Which is effective from December 16. Since then, 24 out of 27 importers have announced to stop supplying rings. In this situation, experts fear that the medical services of heart patients will be disrupted.

Meanwhile, the Directorate of Drug Administration has warned that no one will be allowed to take hostages in the ring trade. Officials also said that the price has been revised based on the evaluation of the expert committee.

Last year, 6,000 people with heart disease were fitted with heart rings at the National Heart Institute and Hospital. The hospital has a demand of 400 to 450 rings every month, more than 60 percent of which are imported from Europe.

Among the 27 importers of coronary stents or heart rings in the country, 24 import European rings, while only three import rings from America.

All types of rings, including the mentioned companies, were sold in the Indian market for only 40 thousand rupees or close to 55 thousand rupees, but they were sold for more than 100,000 rupees depending on the company in the country. To stop such anarchy, the drug administration department recently fixed the prices. Which is effective from December 16.

After that, 24 importers from Europe announced stoppage of supply of heart rings.

Hospital users say that the price of the heart ring should be fixed in accordance with the current market and dollar price.

The hospital authorities say that they have received a letter to stop the supply of rings.

Director of the National Heart Institute and Hospital Professor Dr. Mir Jamal Uddin said that if only three institutions go to supply, a collapse may occur. So everyone should end this deadlock. The solution will come only if everyone sits together and takes a system of DG drugs.

According to the Department of Medicines Administration, the prices have been adjusted on the advice of 13 cardiologists.

Nurul Alam, deputy director of the Department of Medicines Administration, said, ‘Action will be taken if hostages are taken with life-saving products. In no way is it desirable to threaten the lives of common people on the pretext of price increase.’

Importers say that heart rings imported from developed countries should be brought at a fixed price, only then the suffering will be reduced.
