Health department put ban on sale of Oxytocin
 

Noida: The district administration has started cracking down on the sale of Oxytocin except when it is sold under prescription and that too from a licensed distributor or retailer of the drug.

The administration has however chalked out a plan to find out violators selling the drug illegally in the district. The district drug officer, R P Pandey, said that specific steps have been taken following receipt of a letter to take strong measures to prevent illegal and large-scale sale and usage of the drug.

Villagers allegedly use this drug, mostly through injection, to force the cattle to give more milk. "After use of this drug, the calves are generally abandoned or sold to slaughter houses," added Pandey.
