The new Drugs and Cosmetics Act mandating penal action for violation of norms for clinical trial is likely to be introduced in the Parliament during the ongoing Budget session.

The government’s affidavit in the SC states that 80 deaths took place between January 1, 2005 and June 30, 2012, due to clinical trials. The SC is also hearing a PIL which is seeking an independent probe into illegal clinical trials in Madhya Pradesh.
