Lal Singh asked the ISM authorities to ensure that no drug sub-outlets are operative on proxy basis anywhere in the state and ordered that drug shops should be run only with license issued by competent authority of the organisation.

"It is the matter of healthcare and we have to ensure that drugs are only sold by trained pharmacists having requisite certificates and license from the recognized organization. Spurious drugs and proxy drug outlets will be seized and guilty persons booked under the law", he said.

For upgrading the ISM in the state, the minister informed that various new initiatives have been taken in the last two months.

Director General ISM, Dr Abdul Kabir Dar, senior officers of ISM including large number of paramedics were present on the occasion.
