    Sleuths from the Drugs Control Administration in Hyderabad found an ayurvedic medicine called ‘vatharin capsules’ being sold in the market with false claims on its labels that it can treat Rheumatism. This goes against the Drugs and Magic Remedies (Objectionable Advertisements) Act of 1954.

    This act prohibits the advertisement of certain drugs for treating specific diseases and disorders. It is illegal to promote the treatment of diseases listed under this act in any form of advertisement.
