“The ministry received several representations for exempting hand sanitizer from the requirement of sale license,” the notification said.

The notification, dated July 27, stated that the central government is satisfied that hand sanitizer is essential to meet the requirements of emergency arising due to COVID-19 pandemic and their easy availability is made in the public interest.
