Government today removed restrictions on the export of paracetamol APIs. The Directorate General of Foreign Trade has issued a notification in this regard.
Export curbs were imposed on paracetamol and formulations made from the compound in March by the government to shore up domestic supplies amid the coronavirus pandemic.
In April, the government had removed the curbs on shipments of formulations made from paracetamol. Now, it has removed restrictions on paracetamol APIs also. API is the active ingredient that is present in medicine.
