Plea dismissed
The High Court has dismissed the petition filed by Karnataka Drugs and Manufacturers’ Association which had contended that Central Drugs Standard Control Organisation is not the competent authority to certify drugs that can be exported.


Justice Anand Byrareddy dismissed the petition stating that the petitioner’s apprehension cannot be considered on merit.
