Drug regulator issues notices on Flipkart, others for fake cosmetics sale

In a strict action against the sale of “spurious and adulterated” cosmetics, the Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) has issued notices to ecommerce giants — Flipkart, Amazon and IndiaMART — warning the companies of penal actions in case of failing to respond within 10 days.

The notice has been served following the PAN India raids led by drug inspectors on October 5-6, upon reportedly finding some indigenously manufactured cosmetics being sold without valid manufacturing licence and having ingredients imported without necessary registration certificates.

It is to be noted that the law provides for penal actions that may vary from monetary fine to imprisonment for sale of such “unapproved” products.
