Restrictions on the exports of formulations made from Paracetamol were lifted by the government on Friday, amid coronavirus outbreak. However, restrictions on exports of Paracetamol active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) will continue on, the Directorate General of Foreign Trade (DGFT) said in a notification.
"The formulations made from Paracetamol (including fixed-dose combinations) are made free for export with immediate effect. However, Paracetamol APIs will remain restricted for export," it said.
The government on March 3 had put export restrictions on 26 pharma ingredients and medicines, including paracetamol.
