Sections 27(b)(ii), 18 Rule 123—Dettol is a ‘Disinfectant’
A licence under the Act for stocking, exhibiting and sale of ‘Dettol’ is not required - Exemption under—the Drug Inspector searched premises of the second petitioner/ first accused and found Dettol stocked and exhibited for sale in large quantity without a licence—complaint filed—is exhibiting, stocking, selling or distribute ‘Dettol’ without a licence issued under the Drugs and Cosmetics Act, 1940 punishable under Sections 27(b)(ii)—whether ‘Dettol’ is a ‘Disinfectant’ used to treat inanimate objects and materials though it may also be applied to agents used to treat the skin and other body membranes and cavities (externally). Dettol contains some chemicals which are antiseptic but does not lose its character as a Disinfectant. ‘Dettol’ thus comes under item 12 of Schedule K of the Rules and hence is exempted from Chapter IV of the Act by virtue of Rule 123 of the Rules—a licence under the Act for stocking, exhibiting and sale of ‘Dettol’ is not required—Complaints and subsequent proceedings quashed—petitions allowed.
