Ayurvedic medicines are regulated through the Drug and Cosmetic Act in India. The business-related manufacturing of Ayurvedic medicines is regulated under this act in which the manufacturers have to take a license from the State Drug Controlling Authority before starting the processes. The license is taken to run an Ayurvedic Pharmacy to provide Ayurvedic medicines to the retailers. There are authorities like Pharmacopeial Laboratory for Indian Medicine (PLIM) and Homoeopathic Pharmacopoeia Laboratory under the central government that tests the quality of the drugs.
The authority of the state examines the formulation of these medicines, whether they are classical or patent proprietary. The manufacturers have to get a green light from the respective authority to start the manufacturing of these medicines commercially.
