this is clearly a way to fool consumers. by the time these packs wud reach stores a consumer wud think they are fresh if they see it a day or two after the printed date when in reality it wud probably be month old already !!

well that's the plan. unless of course there was a mistake during packaging and they ended up using material scheduled to be used at a later date.

The point still remains... Whats stopping them from marking "current" date on old stock & shipping..

well medicines usually have a very long shelf life. and manufacturing costs are pretty low. profit margins are very high. and there are enough spurious drugs in the market for you to add to the mess. :D
