The government had also said there were no valid licences
for making any of the banned FDCs and added it was difficult to implement any action at state level.
However, it had also said that the lack of approval for these FDCs were a secondary issue and the primary focus was that they “lacked safety and efficacy” and thus, “ban was the only answer”.
It had also said that the banned FDCs had no “therapeutic justification”.
AIDAN, which had intervened in the matter, had argued that there were nearly 40,000 FDC drugs in Indian market and since the regulatory control over such medicines was allegedly “illusory”, the Centre’s decision to ban some of them “was the only move”.
Even the Indian Medical Association (IMA) had moved an application seeking intervention in the matter saying it has decided to support the Centre’s decision. PTI PPS ABA HMP ZMN
