Abstract :

 The Drugs and Cosmetics (Amendment) Act, 2008 passed by the Parliament on 5th December 2008 provides deferent penalties for offences relating to manufacture of spurious or adulterated drugs which have serious implications on public health. It will help regulatory authorities to handle anti social elements involved in the manufacture of such drugs and playing with human safety. The penalty for manufacture of spurious or adulterated drugs has been enhanced to an imprisonment for a term which shall not be less than 10 years but which may extend to imprisonment for life and shall also be liable to fine which shall not be less than ten lakh rupees or three times value of the drug confiscated, whichever is more. In certain cases offences have been made cognizable and non–bailable. It also provides a tool of compounding of offences for dealing with certain minor offences.
