The state’s Ayurveda agency directed the company to halt production of 5 medicines, which the company claims are used to cure diabetes, blood pressure, goitre, glaucoma and high cholesterol.

The authority has now amended the earlier order and allowed the company to continue the production of the five said drugs.

GCN Jangpangi, the drug controller of the state authority said the earlier order was an error in the earlier order, which he said was issued in haste.

"We should have given the company time to explain its stand before issuing the order," Jangpangi said.

Ramdev’s close aide Acharya Balkrishna lauded the decision of Uttarakhand Ayurveda and Unani Licensing Authority to revoke the ban.

The said medicines banned in the previous order include Bpgrit, Madhugrit, Thyrogrit, Lipidom tablets, and Eyegrit Gold tablets, which the company claims are used to cure blood pressure, diabetes, goitre, glaucoma, and high cholesterol. The notice said the company could restart the production of the drugs only after the authority approves their revised formulation sheets.

The order was issued after a doctor from Kerala KV Babu alleged that Divya Pharmacy violated the Drugs and Magic Remedies (objectionable advertisement) Act and the Drugs and Cosmetic Act.

Babu lodged a formal complaint with the Uttarakhand Ayurveda authority on July 2022, and followed it up with another complaint on October 11.

Following the complaints, an order signed by the joint director and drug controller of the state health authority G C N Jangapangi sought a reply from Divya Pharmacy within a week.
