FDA to increase vigilance over the pharmaceutical countries within Nashik District

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA), Nashik has decided to keep strict vigilance on pharmaceutical companies across the district to ensure they follow all guidelines and not breach legal provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940.

The decision came as a result of a case wherein a a pharmaceutical company was found not adhering to the provisions under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, after which it was issued a show cause notice. In the month of October, the vigilance branch of the Maharashtra Food and Drugs Administration had got information about some unwanted operations at the company located at Musalgaon in Sinnar which manufactures tablets, capsules and oral liquids for past 15 years. When the facility was inspected it was found that the company had breached legal provisions of the Drugs and Cosmetic Act. It was also found that the company manufactured and distributed two batches of paracetamol and Ibuprofen suspension without obtaining permission from the FDA. Apart from this the manufacturer also did not kept any document regarding the said batch with respect to its manufacturing, testing and distribution." It was also observed that although the company worked in three shifts but a technically approved person was available only for the general shift and not present for second and third shift.

There are as many as 74 allopathic pharmaceutical companies, 63 ayurveda pharmaceutical companies and 36 companies of cosmetics in Nashik division that comes under the FDA. Although FDA keeps a check on pharmaceutical companies on a regular basis, but according to Vijay Jadhav, Nashik FDA assistant commissioner, they will intensify inspections across the division.
