Department of Drug Administration under the Ministry of Health and Population will soon carry out field inspections of drug stores and pharmacies in major four cities - Kathmandu, Pokhara, Nepalgunj and Biratnagar - in the first phase.

The Department will update the number of the clinics, pharmacies and drug stores as it does not have accurate data on it.

The date of manufacture and expiry, the price and way and place of storage among others will be scrutinised during the inspection.

It is believed that a large number of clinics might be running without registration.
