The emergence of thespurious drughas created a consequential worldwide health crisis and economic burden in many countries. Marketing, availability, and consumption of spurious drugs can lead adverse side effects to consumers (Patients) and even death also. The prevalence of spurious drugs appears to be rising and has not been countered by close cooperation between pharmaceutical industry, government and international organization concerned with health, trade, customs,and excise. According to report published in media and also information from Drug Control Offices, the extent of availability of counterfeit drug is about 0.3 %. The problem has been growing exponentially and solutions are immediatelyrequired. The WHO (World Health Organization) has taken all the possible initiatives to combat counterfeiting and laid various guidelines also. The continuous increase of spurious drugs in the marketplace of India is a serious problem for the health of people. Therefore, drug registration in India should be strengthened to ensure all the drugs are domestically produced as well those imported are assessed for the safety, efficacy,and quality before they are available to the consumers. In this regards all the organization should take active initiation to combat such problem, especially pharmacist can performasignificant role to identify the actual spurious drugs and to suggest the common people not to purchase such type of drug from the market. The present study provides insights into the extent of counterfeit drugs with their consequences on public health and to make awareness among the community, medical practitioner and pharmacist in India.
