Mizoram bans sale of drugs not registered with it from Sept 1, industry protests

The industry has taken strong objection to the Mizoram state government's decision to make it mandatory for the drug companies to register each and every drug entering Mizoram from September 1 this year and levying a fee of Rs 50 per product in the name of averting spurious drugs. 

While appreciating the state government's concern and consumer sensitivity to spurious drugs, the industry said that the method adopted by the government to stop the spread of spurious drugs is unheard of in the country so far as any unit, big or small, which is licensed under the Drugs & Cosmetics Act has a fundamental right to sell drugs throughout the country. Creation of such barriers for Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to operate in parts of the country is not in consumer interest either.
