The Ministry of Health is likely to roll out the e-pharmacy project in the next 100 days, reported LiveMint.
The ministry officials are set to meet key stakeholders next week to form rules and regulations for e-pharmacies, the report said.
The government had earlier released the draft rules related to the project last year, the report said.
The proposed rules, as per the report, will ensure that only government-registered e-portals will be allowed to sell medicines. They, the report added, will make it mandatory for the portals to retain prescriptions and verify details of patients and doctors.
“Regulating e-pharmacy companies is high on the agenda and is part of the government’s 100-day agenda. The Prime Minister who has taken massive steps to push Digital India is keen on this proposal and we hope to give teeth to the online pharmacy business within first 100 days," a health ministry official was quoted as saying in the report.
