"A limited number of Chinese companies supply some of the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) so there can be shortage for that particular lot," an industry executive told the Economic Times.

Some of the ingredients, which were supplied by these firms include clotrimazole, mefenamic acid and sulphadoxine. It is believed that the Chinese firms failed to supply good manufacturing practices (GMP) certificates.
