Chemist shops to go on strike today

share on:

The medicine shops across the country will remain shut today after the All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD) has called up for a protest against the stringent regulations on the sale of medicines in the country.

In a statement, a senior member of AIOCD said, “We have been asked to upload all information related to the sale of medicines on a portal, which is not possible with the existing infrastructure”.

The medicine shops are taking their stand against the online Pharmacy, which can become a threat to their business.

Adding further to this AIOCD member said, “The online pharmacy will also encourage irrational usage of medicines and sale of fake drugs”.
