Types of Pharmacy
  • Firstly, you will need to decide on the type of
    pharmacy you want to open. Is it a standalone
    pharmacy, a chain pharmacy, a hospital pharmacy,
    an online pharmacy or a township pharmacy. If you
    intend to open a standalone pharmacy, you can
    proceed with obtaining an LLP pharmacy
    registration in India. Else you can even register
    your business as a private limited company.

Eligibility for Pharmacy Registration in India
  • However, you need to be aware that in most
    states, a person needs to possess a
    university-recognized diploma or a degree in
    pharmacy. It will be helpful to obtain pharmacy
    registration in India such as Retail Drug License
    (RDL) from the State Drugs Standard Control
    Organization. The list of recognized and approved
    colleges is accessible through the Pharmacy
    Council of India website.

Prerequisites for Obtaining a Drug License
  • Along with qualifications, obtaining a drug
    license requires at least a shop area of 10
    square meters. Space air conditioners and
    refrigerators will also be required to store
    drugs in the Chemist Shop.
Prerequisites for Obtaining a Drug License
If you are applying for a Wholesale Drug License
(WDL), you will not need to possess any degree or
diploma in pharmacy. But you will have to ensure
that the sale of drugs will take place under the
supervision of a registered pharmacist. A
degree-holder with at least one year of
experience in dealing with drugs can also conduct
the same. In both retail pharmacy stores and
wholesale pharmacy stores, drugs can only be sold
by pharmacists who have been approved by the
states Department of Drug Control.

    Licence), Form 21 (for Wholesale Licence), Form
    19B (for Retail Homeopathic license), Form 20C
    (for Wholesale Homeopathic License), Form 19C
    (for Retail and Wholesale license of Schedule X
    Drugs), and Form 19A (for Retail Restricted
  • One can download these forms from the Central
    Drugs Standard Control Organization website. Even
    individual State Drugs Standard Control
    Organizations provide the same.
  • Submit the mandatory forms with required
    documents to ensure the smooth functioning of
    pharmacy registration in India.
  • Aside from fulfilling these requirements, you
    will need to deposit a number of documents in
    order to obtain a Retail Drug Licence or a
    Wholesale Drug Licence.
Online Pharmacy in India
The procedure for opening an online pharmacy in
India is quite similar to opening a pharmacy in
India. However, there are rules that have to be
followed in both cases while they put more stress
on online pharmacy law in India
  • No Sale without prescription
  • No Sale of Schedule X drugs
  • Final Packing in a tamper-proof cover under the
    personal supervision of registered Pharmacist of
    the pharmacy
  • Valid Bill for Every sale
  • Facilitate Medicine Recall in the case directed
    by the Government

The IIPA is collaborating with the Central
Government to update regulations by linking the
Aadhaar Number with prescriptions to strengthen
the online pharmacy law in India.
We are sure this information would be helpful for
you. You can simply follow the above steps to
obtain pharmacy registration in India and to
start your chemist shop.
