    The Telangana Drugs Control Administration (DCA) conducted a raid at Hikma Sehat Care in Golconda. They found ‘Saheth Care Powder’ which falsely claims to treat diabetes and blood pressure. This violates the Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act, 1954.

    The Act prohibits the advertisement of certain drugs for specific diseases and disorders. It is illegal to publish advertisements about these diseases and disorders.
