The total amount of Rs 1,335,000 (1.3million) was imposed as penalties after all cases were analyzed in light of the rising quackery incidents across the province.

It was recommended by the Directorate of Anti-Quackery to gradually increase the fines and impose heavier fines to ensure that writ of the Commission is sustained across the board.
