In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the current lockdown, India's Central Drugs Standard Control Organization (CDSCO) has announced to issue import licences for medical devices and in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) kits, even if the required notarised / apostilled documents cannot be presented at the moment.  Applications may be submitted as per the provisions of the Medical Device Rules, 2017 along with all relevant documents which only require self-attestation for now. The applications must further include an undertaking stating that the notarised / apostilled documents will be submitted subsequently once the COVID-19 situation has improved or within four months (whichever is earlier).
