Do OTC drugs need a license to be sold?
Q: Can I get the list of OTC drugs approved by DGCI and do we need any license to sell these OTC drugs?
A:Over-the-counter (OTC) drugs means that a doctor's prescription is not required. Some OTC medicines called "household remedies" are allowed to be sold in shops in very small villages (less than 1,000 population) if there is no retail chemist. Otherwise they can only be sold in a chemist shop for, which license is required.
