  • The central government has prepared a law draft over e-pharmacy and is considering to bring it in for debate in the next Lok Sabha session.
  • If this draft, becomes an act then it will legitimise and give e-pharmacist and equal footing when compared to other chemist shops.
  • To protest against this the Maharashtra Registered Pharmacist Association has decided to write a letter, demanding that this draft should not be bought in and the sale of medicine online should be made legal. As it may have adverse consequences.

The Maharashtra Registered Pharmacist Association will urge Dr Harsh Vardhan to not bring in e-pharmacies and not accept them. They will state their demands in the letter.

While speaking to My Medical Mantra, Kailash Tandale, President of Maharashtra Registered Pharmacist Association, said, “Online pharmacies don’t have valid permission for sale of medications. Yet they prosper through apps and the Internet. At times, they sell Medical Termination of Pregnancy (MTP) pills or other intoxicant drugs and scheduled drugs which are bought by buyers. There is no form of regulation or control over this.”

Currently, only a draft has been prepared, but if this becomes a bill then buying and selling of medicine online will be recognised. This could lead to rampant buying of medicine for wrongful purposes.

Tandale added, “The government is considering to bring in the E-pharmacy Act, they have even prepared a draft for it. It might be passed in the next assembly session. If this happens, many people could lose their lives. These medicines are brought without a doctor’s prescription. That is why; we will be issuing a letter to the health minister.”
