Delhi HC reserves verdict on pleas against ban on 344 FDCs

On May a total of 334 FDC were banned by the central government. But this created a big ruffle among the practitioners. The Delhi HC kept asking the government what’s the urgency in banning these FDCs?

Recently during arguments in the HC, the drug companies had contended that government has not properly implemented the powers under section 26A (power to prohibit manufacture of drugs and cosmetics in public interest) of Drugs and Cosmetics Act under which the ban was ordered. They had also argued that the ban order was passed without considering clinical data and termed as “absurd” government’s claim that it took the decision to ban FDCs on the ground that safer alternatives were available. Thus the Delhi High Court on Thursday reserved its verdict in over 450 petitions filed by drug and healthcare majors challenging the Centre’s decision to ban 344 fixed dose combination (FDC) medicines, including well known brands like Corex cough syrup, Vicks Action 500 extra and D’Cold.
