Chandigarh, June 30, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)

Furthering the state-wide efforts to contain the menace of drugs, Commissionerate of Food and Drug Administration Punjab under Tandrust Punjab Mission has set up a dedicated complaint number and E-mail address to report the sale of illicit drugs in Medical Stores, informed KS Pannu, CFDA Punjab.

Giving Details, Pannu informed that mobile telephone number 098152-06006 and email id:[email protected] has been set up for people to report against the sale of prohibited/ habit forming drugs by the chemists. The identity of the complainant will be kept absolutely discrete and undisclosed, he assured.

Urging the people to join the combat against the drugs, he said that there are nearly 16000 medical stores in the State that dispense medicine to the public. Most of the stores adhere to the norms prescribed by Commissionerate of Food and Drug Administration and sell legally permitted medicine. Infact, teams of the Commissionerate regularly inspect medical stores to check the sale of habit forming drugs. But, some black sheep in the trade hoodwink the system and in the garb of medical store, sell the prohibited drugs. So, to decimate the sale of habit forming drugs from the medical stores local inputs and support of people is must.

He requested the people to use the complaint number to report every irregularity in the Drugs and Cosmetics Act that come into their notice in terms of sale of prohibited drugs, so that the illicit activity may be controlled.
