Do the Drug Trials in India without permission No Jail Just pay fine maximum 100$

Madhya Pradesh

Few days back Government officers found that 12 doctors without taking any permission
And without informing the patient did the drug trials on children and patients with learning disabilities.

After that the doctors were fined 5,000 rupees ($94; £60) each for failing to inform the authorities about the tests.

The Madhya Pradesh government has fined 12 doctors Rs. 5,000 each for conducting drug trials on children and mentally challenged persons,

The trials of the drug to treat sexual dysfunction were in the city of Indore.

There was no provision in Schedule ‘Y' of the Drugs and Cosmetic Rules 1945
for powers to States to monitor/regulate drug/clinical trials,”
Thus doctors do not inform.

This is reason we need another amendment in this law,
Suggested Amendment -
If any doctor or company does the drug trial without permission, the doctor and company will be fined Rs. 1 Crore per patient and failure to pay will result in 1000 Year of Jail term.

Dr Anand Rai, told the Times of India: "Drug trials were performed on patients who had gone to the hospitals for routine treatment. It's a criminal offence to put them under drug trials without consent."

They were not fined for not informing the patients, thus currently we should consider that it’s legal not to inform the patients.

If it’s not legal then the question is why they were not fined for not informing to patients.

Media has not published the names of doctors or neither it has paid more attention to such important news.

Just think when poor girls are found in a bar, whole day and night they show the girls and the news.

Welcome to India and do the drug trials without permission of the patient and without informing government as if you are found you can pay 100 $ and enjoy your life.

We Indians learn nothing from Bhopal Gas.

Mera Bharat Mahan

Every Indian law we need to change it but our politicians always end up making laws like weak Lokpal whom no one is going to fear.

Rs.5000 fine is bad from another angle. Because by paying Rs.5000 the doctors will "feel" they are clear of all "crimes". It gives them "clear of all crimes" mentality.
Lot of humiliations happening. Government should not take up these humiliations lying down. All men and women are equal. But resources and things should be got by merit. Not by shortcuts.
Punishments should be discussed by MPs. They should rack their mind whether Rs.5000 absolves a doctor of the crime. Punishment bill should be taken by parliament.

sm, This is very shocking to read that doctors are doing drug trials on innocent people..they are supposed to be healers and saviors of health problems. All those 78+12 doctors must be punished and their license to practice must be revoked. I agree with the suggested amendment.

Wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy new year. :)
