History of Drug Legislation and Pharmacy Profession in India?
During 1920-1930 there were a number of reports of harmful substitutes and adulterants being marketed in place of genuine drugs and toxic effects of such drugs were published in the Indian press from time to time. According to reports of the Indian Medical Gazette during this period, there was absolutely no control over the manufacturing, sale, and distribution of drugs in India. Several deaths were reported due to spurious drugs. In place of eye drops, croton oil was used. Chalk powder was frequently found to be used for the adulteration of drug formulations. There were toxicity reports due to overdose of mercury compounds. In the absence of effective Acts and Rules related to drugs and pharmaceuticals in the country, there was a rat race for the manufacturing of sub-standard, spurious, and adulterated formulations.
