Amazon India launches Amazon Pharmacy in Bengaluru

new Delhi. E-commerce magazine Amazon India has announced the launch of Amazon Pharmacy, entering the online medicine segment. The company has initially introduced this service in Bengaluru and in future the company will expand its service to other cities as well. The company says that due to corona virus, online drug demand has increased significantly and the company wants to take advantage of this opportunity.

Amazon spokesperson said that in line with our commitment to meet every need of consumers, we have started Amazon Pharmacy in Bangalore, which will provide home delivery of medicines to consumers on medical advice. Apart from this, it will also provide basic health devices and Ayurvedic medicines from certified vendors.

The spokesperson further said that at the present time it was very much needed as it would cater to the consumers for their essential medicines while keeping them safe at their homes. The e-pharmacy has to get approval before the Central Licensing Authority to sell the drug online.

Amazon India has partnered with licensed vendors for pharmacy service. Healthcare start-ups such as 1mg, PharmEG and MedLife have achieved significant growth in the past few months. Keeping in mind the social distancing to avoid the epidemic, people are currently shopping for medicines online.
