The Supreme Court has issued an order to the government to make essential medicines like cetamol and paracetamol easily available.

A single bench of Justice Manoj Kumar Sharma passed the order in the name of the government today.

The order said, "As it seems necessary to make the fundamental rights of the citizens related to health more practical, it is necessary to make special arrangements for the immediate and easy distribution of paracetamol required for health treatment in coordination with all levels of the government."

Advocate Tika Bahadur Kunwar had filed a writ petition in the Supreme Court on Monday seeking an order to provide essential medicines including paracetamols to the citizens. The court issued the order after hearing the writ petition.
