Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 14

Coming down heavily on offenders, the drug administration wing of Punjab has sealed 16 chemist shops in a month in the state for unaccounted stock of habit-forming drugs.

KS Pannu, Commissioner, Food and Drug Administration, Punjab, said in line with the state government’s zero tolerance policy towards drugs, the commissionerate had issued orders imposing specific restrictions on stocking, sale and distribution of habit-forming drugs, namely Tramadol and Tapentadol, in oral solid dosage forms by wholesale as well as retail sale licences. This was in addition to the restrictions imposed earlier on six drugs containing Dextropropoxyphene, Diphenoxylate, Codeine, Pentazocine, Buprenorphine and Nitrazepam in their formulations. Regular inspections by drug control officers and zonal licensing authorities have unearthed unaccounted stock of habit-forming drugs at various chemist shops.
