My wife had BC was operated in October 2015, finished Radiation and chemotherapy after that. She was on daily tablet of Letroz 2.5mg since then. Now the pharmacy is saying Indian government banned the tablet. Is that true, if yes is there any substitute for it or we should visit our medical onco.

No. It is not banned. It is readily available with prescription.
