DIMAPUR, MAY 31: The Nagaland Medicine Dealers Association (NMDA) has asked the drugs control authority in the State to check those dealing in medicines and surgical products without drug license and proper documentation.
In a press release issued on Monday, the NMDA demanded strict actions against those persons. At the same time, it asserted that no unauthorized person will be allowed to search or check any pharmacies “in the name of surveillance” and harass its members.
The Association also noted that an unprecedented surge in demand for some crucial medicines used in treating COVID patients has created panic among COVID patients and their families.
It urged all its members not to sell the COVID-related medicines, medical and surgical equipments at more than its MRP.
“Please charge nominal to the patients and general public and consider it as a noble service. The NMDA doesn’t want its members to indulge in any malpractices or unethical activities”, it stated.
The NMDA appreciated the medicine wholesalers and retailers who are working day and night to ensure availability of medicines, especially of chronic diseases and life-saving drugs. (Page News Service)
