Not hygienic, 38 medical stores barred in Jammu

Jammu, April 7

Operations of 38 retail medical establishments across the Jammu division have been suspended by the Drugs and Food Control Organisation for non-maintenance of sales records and not following proper hygiene, an official spokesman said.

The shops were disallowed under relevant sections of the Drugs & Cosmetics Act by sleuths of the Drugs and Food Control Organisation during supervisory checks of retail sale outlets in Doda, Kishtwar, Jammu, Kathua and Samba districts. The spokesman said licensees were warned of severe action in case deficiencies were not removed within a stipulated time period.

He said the drive was targeted to ensure medical stores operated strictly in consonance with the mandate of law and in the best interest of patient care. — PTI
