Eighteen-year-old Arjun Deshpande has been eagerly waiting for his class 12 results while the Covid19 lockdown continues in Mumbai. He loves football and reading. But he is not a regular teenager.
He is the founder of a start-up that employs 55 people and has managed to catch the attention of Tata Group patriarch Ratan Tata. The industrialist has now invested in his pharmaceutical business venture Generic Aadhaar to provide affordable medicines to the masses. Deshpande, who completed his schooling from DAV Public School, Thane, was a globe trotter from a young age.
Generic Aadhaar aims at providing affordable and quality medicines to every Indian, by aggregating the medical stores under one umbrella.

Arjun Deshpande, one of the youngest entrepreneurs of India, seems to be inspired by his mother who is into an international pharma business. He used to travel to USA, Vietnam, China and Dubai in his school holidays and it was during the meetings with various importers, distributors and MOH Authorities that he learnt that people in these countries had access to affordable medicines. He asked his mother why medicines are sold in India at comparatively higher prices. He further learnt that most generic medicines in India are promoted as branded medicines which raise its cost.
After exhaustive research and analysis of medicines, Arjun found that most generic and branded medicines have the same compositions. They are promoted by marketing gimmicks and therefore, many people can’t even afford these medicines. At this point, Arjun vowed to make quality medicines affordable for every Indian. This led to the foundation of Generic Aadhaar, a dream project that is making affordable healthcare a reality in India.
