Diabetes Medicine substitutes

My uncle is 47 years old male. He has Diabetes and he is taking the following medicine

Metformin 500mg 3 times a day
Zoryl - 1mg , Once Daily 1/2 tablet in the morning

Recently Doctor observed his BP is high. 150, 90 So he prescribed
Tazloc 40 mg , Once daily 1 tablet in the morning

Since he is economically not doing great I used to help him to buy medicine.

When I visited the pharmacy, Pharmacist suggested to buy Telmikind (40 Mg) instead of Tazloc 40 mg because same drug but different manufacturer. Tazloc 40 costs 9 rupees per tablet but Telmikind costs Rupees 2.25 per tablet.

Can you advise the following?

1. Is Telmikind 40 is safe as Tazloc 40? Is the manufacturer of Telmikind 40 is Mankind pharma. Is the manufacturer reputed and popular company?

2. I am paying Rupees 3.60 per tablet for Zoryl - 1mg. Can you also suggest an equivalent medicine which is low cost and from reputed manufacturing company?

Appreciate your help. Thanks
