Kerala HC orders action against Medicine dispensation by unqualified persons

pharmacy5The Kerala high court has ordered stringent action against the common practice of dispensing medicines from medical shops by unqualified persons.

Only a qualified pharmacist can dispense medicines and severe action should be taken against the medical shops that violate the law, the court said.

The order was issued by a single bench of the high court after considering a petition filed by the secretary of Kerala Pharmacists Organization. It was alleged by the petitioner that medical shops are employing persons not qualified as pharmacists for dispensing medicines and such a practice violates provisions of Pharmacy Act of 1948, Drugs and Cosmetics Act of 1940, Pharmacy Practice Regulations 2015, etc.
