Issues about e-sale (medicines)

The government has proposed a set of rules for regulating the sale of medicines, including those by “e-pharmacies,” platforms that sell medicines online. Retail chemists across India have reacted negatively to these and even went on a one-day strike. If medicines are already being sold online, should they be stopped, or is it better to regulate them? If we accept the latter, then will the e-platform proposed by the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) help, or will it throw up a new set of problems?
