The government has asked stent manufacturers to maintain uninterrupted supply of coronary stents by invoking emergency clause in public interest. The move comes in the wake of various multinationals, including Abbott and Medtronic, seeking permission to withdraw some of their products from India following price control. The Department of Pharmaceuticals (DoP) has invoked an emergency clause of the Drug Price Control Order, 2013, in public interest to ensure the companies complied with its direction.

The order to maintain uninterrupted supply of coronary stents will be valid for the next six months and the NPPA and the DCGI will recommend withdrawal or extension as the case may be, two weeks before the expiry of the period.
