A brief about 18 pharmaceutical businesses lose their licences due to poor medicine quality
State and federal drug officials jointly inspected 76 pharmaceutical companies out of the 203 that were found during the inspections, which were conducted in 20 states. Upon investigation, 18 pharmaceutical companies had their licences revoked.
Additionally, 26 firms have received a show-cause notice, while three firms have had their product licences cancelled.
Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Delhi, Goa, Gujarat, Himachal Pradesh, Jammu and Kashmir, Haryana, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Puducherry, Punjab, Rajasthan, Sikkim, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, and West Bengal were among the states where inspections were conducted.
This initiative was started after it was discovered that some pharmaceutical businesses were flouting or breaking the rules on the use of good manufacturing techniques in the production of drugs and treatments.
In some cases in the past, it was claimed that cough syrup makers in India, who were exporting these cough syrups to countries like Gambia, were responsible for the deaths of children in those nations. According to official sources, the DCGI examination has just begun and will go on for some time.
