The All India Organisation of Chemists and Druggists (AIOCD), which has more than eight lakh members, will go on a day-long strike on May 30 to protest against the Health Ministry’s proposal to regulate the sale of medicines through an e-portal. The organisation has said an e-portal is a highly impracticable option for something as sensitive as sales.

As per the newly proposed Goods and Services Tax (GST) system, stockists and vendors are expected to upload data on the government website within a stipulated time. As per AIOCD, this will prove to be expensive and cumbersome. The association further added that considering the insufficient IT infrastructure across the country, it will be difficult for most stockists, druggists and chemists to upload sales details on the e-portal within the stipulated period. This will create a scarcity of medicines in the country and lead to chaos.
