The Himachal Pradesh Excise and Taxation Department has suspended the manufacturing licenses of two pharmaceutical firms based in Kala Amb in Sirmaur district for allegedly violating provisions of the NDPS Act and irregularities in sales.

Commissioner (State Taxes and Excise) Yunus said the MD-VI licenses of these drug companies had been suspended.

While the license of Orison Pharma International was suspended in January, similar action was taken against the company’s sister concern Aqua Parenteral (manufacturing opium derivatives) last evening, he said.

On May 31, 2020, Orison Pharma was allegedly found manufacturing tablets containing tramadol, which were sold to a marketing company, in Ahmedabad without any agreement in violation of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

During inspection, 30 lakh tramadol tablets were seized.
