The State Licensing Authority has issued necessary orders for indefinite suspension of the licenses of three firms namely, M/s Ethicare Laboratories, M/s Vivek Pharmachem (India) Ltd and M/s Biosearch Organics, an official spokesman said.

The Licenses of two firms—M/s A K Biotech and M/s Minil Laboratories—have been withdrawn in part to manufacture drugs.
