Cracking down on the growing menace of spurious drugs, government will introduce measures including roping in private detective agencies, setting up a separate intelligence network and giving rewards upto Rs 25 lakh to informers to check the problem. Steps are also being taken to set up drug testing centres at various ports besides offering rebates on ceiling (maximum) price to drug manufacturers adopting latest packing technology to counter the menace, official sources said. The Government will set up a separate intelligence-cum-legal cell in the Central Drug Standard Control Organisation (CDSCO) and, if necessary, help of private detective agencies will also be taken to unravel activities of people involved in estimated Rs 17,500 crore fake and spurious drug manufacturing business, they said. Taking a cue from his experience in Jammu and Kashmir as Chief Minister, Union Health Minister Ghulam Nabi Azad has already announced a reward for those who will provide information on fake drugs. Under this scheme, people may earn upto a maximum of Rs 25 lakh as reward, they said, adding modalities were being worked out. Azad, during his tenure as Chief Minister, had announced a reward on providing information about those who threw grenades in public places. The scheme paid off and the grenade throwing ended by and large.
