Dear Mr. P.Venu, Thank you for your question! The context of this query is to analyze the possibility to challenge the section 3(d) of this "The Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisement) Act, 1954" with 3(d)(i) and 3(d)(ii). So I want to know the correct meaning of the sections 3(d)(i) and 3(d)(ii). Also, I am looking for the expert in this challenge.

Dear Experts, I am inviting even the negative comments also in this regard

You are inviting even the negative comments that mean is it a test paper to this forum members? Anyhow, as per obtaining information, it is said to be that " the drug is defined to include any medicine, substance, or device, article affecting the organic structure of humans or animals, or any component of it. ‘Magic Remedy’ is defined to include talisman, mantra, kavacha, and any other charm which is alleged to possess miraculous powers of diagnosing, curing, prevention, etc. of certain diseases. ‘Advertisement’ under the DMRA can be in any form, such as a notice, circular, wrapper, label, announcement (oral, smoke or light), or any other document.

As I could understand, the stipulations in the proviso is only meant to ensure that prohibition as provided under Section 3(d) are reasonable and not arbitrary.
