To keep proper check on the purchase, manufacture, sale and distribution of drugs formulations and raw material of drugs included in Drugs and Cosmetics Act, Narcotics Drugs and Psychotropic Substances Act to check the reported misuse, State Government has put strict vigil on it.

A Spokesman of State Government said here today that all the manufacturers in the State having product licenses in respect of drugs included in NDPS Act or controlled drugs or precursors had to submit the complete inventory in respect of purchase, manufacture, sale or distribution and stock in hand of finished goods as well as raw material of each drug separately in the office of concerned Drug Inspector. He said that manufacturers had to submit in addition to the copy of quarterly report submitted to Narcotics Control Bureau, the monthly report in this regard on or before 5th of every preceding month.

He said that failure to comply with these orders would be viewed very seriously and strict action would be taken under the provisions of Drugs and Cosmetics Act.
