The USFDA inspected active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) manufacturing facility (Unit V) at Pashamylaram and API manufacturing facility (Unit VIII) at Gaddapotharam in Hyderabad between October 21 and October 28, the company said in a BSE filing.

"At the end of the inspections, we have been issued a Form 483 with four observations for each facility.We believe that these observations are related to procedural improvements and none of the observations are related to data integrity," it added.

The company will be responding to the US Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) as per the prescribed time lines, the drug firm said.
