Shimla: Found irregularities under the NDPS Act, the State Taxes and Excise department has suspended the license of two firms in district Sirmaur.

Excise Commissioner Yunus revealed that the action was taken against the pharma firms for not manufacturing the products as per the provisions of the NDPS Act and found irregularities in the sale.

“Firms were not working as per the provisions made under the NDPS Act; hence action has been taken against the firms as per rules,” Yunus clarified.
