4. Description Abstract This paper primarily discusses the judgment of the Delhi High Court on the government’s ban on the use of Oxytocin. Part 1 recapitulates the events leading up to the ban and Part 2 discusses the legal issues considered by the Court before pronouncing its judgment. The paper outlines how life and death issues caused by the ban on a drug have finally been settled by legal considerations, apparently obscure to the non-specialist, but necessary to be understood by health policy makers.
