The state government suspended the licenses of five local manufacturing units after the drug control authority seized sub-standard drugs worth Rs.21 lakh.

"The Drug and Food control organization (DFCO) in Jammu and Kashmir have seized sub standard drugs worth Rs.21 lakh and also suspended the license of five drug manufacturing units," an official spokesman reported.

Governor NN Vohra, directed Controller, DFCO, issued instructions that the Director should furnish a report on the specific action taken by DFCO in the past one year to check the manufacture and sale of sub-standard/spurious drugs in the market, they added.

Earlier, the Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) had found that a large number of drug samples lifted from various hospitals in J&K were not of standard quality and out of 156 drug samples taken 27 were declared "not of standard quality".
