New Delhi, February 2016: The Central Government has asked States to equip themselves with both infrastructure and laws in order to ensure the quality of Ayurvedic medicines on sale within their respective jurisdictions.

The move comes in the wake of growing complaints about sub-standard and spurious Ayush medicines, as well as misleading claims by various companies in respect of their medical formulations.

Union Minister of State for AYUSH, Shripad Naik said complaints about misleading advertisements and tall claims regarding Ayush medicines have been brought to “our notice by Ministries of Consumer Affairs and Information and Broadcasting and Drug Controller General.”

Addressing a conference on Ayush here, he pointed out that quality control of Ayush drugs is a statutory requirement but regretted that focussed efforts have not been made by states to put in place a robust enforcement mechanism in order to ensure that the Ayush medicines being manufactured and sold meet all required parameters.
