Amazon India launches Amazon Pharmacy

Amazon India on Thursday launched Amazon Pharmacy to begin in Bangalore, with pilot projects going on in other cities too. Though the ongoing pandemic is paving ways to online purchases but the All India Organization of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD) wrote a letter to eCommerce giant Bezos that the launch is illegal citing in contravention to the rules one among that is the order of Delhi High Court which put a stay on online pharmacies.

AIOCD also mentioned PM in the letter citing that the Indian Govt decision to allow online home delivery of medicines is only allowed during lock down as its an emergency situation but the decision now may be ruled as contempt of court order. Amazon Pharmacy may have the lead here in terms of profit making as many are preferring online delivery over going in person to purchase medicines due to effect of Covid-19.
