Over 3,000 fake pharmacists in State

By Correspondent

DOOMDOOMA, June 24 � More than three thousand fake pharmacists are illegally operating in the State. This allegation was levelled by the All Assam Pharmacists Welfare Council (AAPWC).

Addressing a press meet at Doomdooma Press Club recently, AAPWC working president, Tarini Deka and secretary, Debojit Mahanta told that these three thousand fake pharmacists have illegally registered their names with the Assam Pharmacy Council (APC). The AAPWC leaders also said that the APC has already filed a case against 754 such fake pharmacists in Dispur Police Station. They urged the State Government to take immediate actions against those fake pharmacists.

Moreover, AAPWC has also alleged that most of the pharmacies in the State are running their business without a qualified pharmacist.

On the other hand, government has issued Restricted Pharmacy License to those who have served under a qualified pharmacist for more than five years and they can serve in rural areas. Such RP License holder cannot sell medicine in the five kilometres radius from a full-fledged pharmacy. But, in many areas of the State many pharmacies are running with RP License. AAPWC has demanded the government to take this matter seriously for the greater interest of the society.

AAPWC has also urged the government to hold the election of the Assam Pharmacy Council immediately. It is alleged that since 1994 election of APC has not held and it has been operating with the government nominated members.

AAPWC has further demanded a uniform salary structure for all the pharmacists working in different sectors and urged the government to take necessary measures.
