E-Pharmacy start-ups which were hindered by various regulations are like to get a boost with the new gazette notification by the health ministry for online pharmacies. These new regulations offer clarity and enhance the accessibility of medicine delivery across the country. Under this notification, e-pharmacies will have to register themselves with a central licensing authority which would monitor sale and distribution of drugs. They would be barred from sharing any health data of consumers and would need to maintain and update information regarding availability, types of drugs and supply channels or vendor list. The notification also stops them advertising drugs and from selling drugs covered under the Narcotic and Psychotropic Act 1985, tranquilizers and drugs in the schedule X of Drugs and Cosmetics Rules, 1945. Companies like Netmeds, 1mg, Myra, PharmEasy and others said that this is a move in the right direction and will pave a way of level playing.
