In India, stores like grocery, electronics, clothing, and other, pharmacies also come online. Currently, there are so many platforms like Medlife, Netmeds, and more. Now, Amazon India is also coming to this field. This Friday, the e-commerce giant will launch its pharmacy service named ‘Amazon Pharmacy”. Initially, it will be available in Bengaluru only. Later the service will open to other places where demand is high.
Customers will get both prescribed and over-the-counter services along with traditional Indian herbal medicines and health care devices.
Though the regulations for e-pharmacies are yet to finalize in India, this section faces a rapid growth of demands. There are so many protests too against online drug sales pointing out the verification drawbacks before taking the orders.
The legal head of South Chemists and Distributors Association, Yash Aggarwal said, “Amazon’s customer base is very high, so we are bound to lose business. There are 5 million families dependent on this trade,”
Earlier, Amazon India got permission to deliver liquor in West Bengal back in June. In the last month, the company decided to open 10 new warehouses across India and will start offering auto insurance.
