The work on setting up 200 generic drug outlets in Karnataka under the Jan Aushadhi scheme of the Central government will be launched  on October 2, according to the Union minister of Chemicals and Fertilisers, H N Ananth Kumar.

Of the 200 outlets, 168 would be set up in district and taluk centres, while 32 others will be set up in community health centres.
