Oxytocin is injected in cows and buffaloes to induce more lactation, though it reduces their life span and
creates hormone disorders in consumers. It is banned under schedule H of the Drugs and Cosmetics Act.

UN affiliated OIPA in India then he shared this information with the State Drug Controller Girdhari Lal
Singla, a team was constituted and raid was conducted under the leadership of Naresh Kadyan.




Dr Rakesh Gupta, Commissioner, Food and Drug Administration (FDA), said the FDA raided
M/s Tilak Raj Kapil Kumar, Sabji Mandi, Rewari, and seized 600 injections of oxytocin
manufactured by M/s Ambika Pharmaceuticals, Gaya, Bihar. These injections were banned
and were without any bill. They should have been in a blister pack, but were in single
packing, he added.

Dr Gupta said the injections were sealed and were produced before CJM RK Bhankar and the
custody order was taken. An FIR has been lodged under the Drug Act.
