The Pharmaceutical Industry insiders know very well how the associations dictated terms to manufacturers, distributors and retailers.. The manufacturers were required to obtain such an NOC without which business could not be run. A system of obtaining a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the association for introduction of a new medicine in the market though it had no legal standing. Mr Mahesh Zagade as a VAILIANT AND UNCORRUPT OFFICER raised his voice against this extra-constitutional practice. The matter went to the Competition Commission of India. Finally, the associations had to issue an official circular which stated that no NOC from it would be required and that there would be no boycott of pharma companies that did not approach the association for an NOC. A milestone in Mr Mahesh Zagade’s two-year tenure is his effort in smashing the stranglehold of the chemists’ association and getting justice from illegal stranglehold of Mr Jagannath Shinde led Association .
