Introduction: There were no legislations pertaining to manufacture, sale and distribution during early 20th century. Export was limited to crude drugs and a few drugs in their finished form were imported. Anything under the name of drug could be manufactured, sold or imported as there were absolutely no controls. It was only when synthetic and semisynthetic compounds derived from plants and other sources were manufactured and formulated in different dosage forms, the need to enact laws to govern manufacture, sale and distribution of medicines was felt. However, there were various reports of substandard, adulterated and spurious medicines which had actually triggered the Government to initiate drug legislation.
