Maharashtra FDA raids Snapdeal office for selling

 Maharashtra's Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) has raided the premises of major e-commerce company Snapdeal for allegedly selling prescription drugs online.

According to FDA Commissioner Harshadeep Kamble, the officials raided Snapdeal's offices in Goregaon, north-west Mumbai, after a tip-off was received that prescription drugs such as Ascoril cough syrup, Vigora tablets, and other drugs were being sold online.
 
However, the e-commerce giant has denied that any restricted products or drugs were found on their fufillment centre by the FDA officials, and assured help to the FDA in their investigations.
 
The raid was conducted under the Drugs & Cosmetics Act, 1940 Sec. 18 (C), read with Rule 65, specifying that only a licensed retailer can sell drugs and that too on the basis of a doctor's prescription.
 
Rule 65 also prescribes the relevant procedures to be adopted by chemists and pharmacy stores while selling prescription drugs, particularly Schedule H drugs under the Act.
 
Snapdeal.com is accused of selling various drugs, including those needing a doctor's prescription, and violating norms. The company has been asked to provide full details of the people involved, companies, their respective documents including challans, payment details, invoices, agreements etc.
