The DCGI has directed all concerned stakeholders for submission of application in Form CT-21

The Drugs Controller General of India (DCGI) has directed manufacturers to follow a procedure for regularisation of 31 Fixed Dose Combinations (FDCs) declared as rational out of the 294 FDCs as per the recommendations of Drugs Technical Advisory Board (DTAB).

As per the report of DTAB dated April 13, 2021 and recommendations of subcommittee of DTAB as approved, 31 FDCs have been considered as rational under 294 FDCs category.

These FDCs were licensed to manufacture and market by the State Licensing Authorities (SLAs) without prior approval from the DCGI.

The DCGI has directed all concerned stakeholders for submission of application in Form CT-21 as per the defined pathway for clearance of the cases. It has also been urged to ensure that product license in respect of these 31 FDCs are issued after the approval of DCGI in favour of the applicant.
