JAIPUR: All the medical stores run by the Rajasthan Government’s Cooperative Department will start computerised billing from April 1. The Rajasthan Sahakari Upbhokta Sangh has prepared a new software to keep the billing online.

Easy handling

Registrar of Cooperative Societies Mukesh Sharma said here on Saturday that computerisation would ensure ready availability of all medicines and facilitate easy handling of records and issue of bills to the consumers.

Mr. Sharma pointed out that the Upbhokta Sangh was operating 65 “Uphaar” medical stores in Jaipur, while 31 cooperative wholesale stores were running nearly 400 medical stores across the State. Lakhs of State Government employees, pensioners and other patients buy medicines from these stores every month.

Timely supply

Mr. Sharma said the computerised operations would also help in timely supply of drugs to the medical stores by facilitating the availability of up-to-date records. The introduction of computerised billing in the new financial year would check avoidable delays and provide a big relief to the consumers, he added.
