Fake branded life-saving antibiotics are being made fiercely in Uttarakhand. More than 10 factories have been caught in the last three to four years. Counterfeit drug dealers are making antibiotics under the guise of food licenses. A separate license is required to manufacture the drug. Drug Control Department and Food Safety Department are unable to control them.
In Roorkee, Bhagwanpur area, the investigation into old cases of counterfeit medicines is not even completed and a new case comes to the fore. Most of the cases of making counterfeit medicines are being done under the guise of food licenses. The license is given by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India.
Hotel operators also take food licenses. Without this license, a person cannot do any work related to food and drink. Apart from the sale of food items in the food license, vitamins, protein powders, etc. are also made. The process of getting a food license is relatively easy. Under its guise, the game of counterfeit drugs takes place. It contains the most antibiotics.
In the last three-four years, more than ten fake drug factories were caught in the Roorkee area. Out of this, more than six factories were running under the guise of food licenses. Two years ago, when such cases came continuously, many factories were investigated by the Drug Control Department and the Food Safety Department.
On Saturday, the fake medicine factory caught in Dada Jalalpur of Bhagwanpur was also running under the guise of a food license. Antibiotics were being made here too. Both the departments are not able to take concrete action against those manufacturing counterfeit medicines by taking such licenses.
