Blatant violation by epharmacy apps - no mrp/expiry date

I am 100% convinced that the legal metrology depts in various states are still in 1990s busy checking weights & measures at local traders.

The reality has changed. People have moved online. See how epharmacy apps like medlife and others dont even show mrp and expiry date ( a requirement per law)

Please issue notices with a firm date and if not compliant shut these apps. Cant take consumers for a ride. more

It is true that we are too dependent on Govt for these things. We can question the seller for such things and complain/give feedback. more  
It is surprising that e-pharmacy apps like medlife and others dont even show MRP and expiry date. MRP enforcement squad to look into this aspect. more  
Epharmacy are helping common man in providing cheap medicines. Why don't we raise voice against local chemist who fleece the public?
Secondly we have become lethargic and too dependent on govt. If we are aware about expiry date then while buying we can insist on knowing expiry date from epharmacy. If one does not give we can go to another pharmacy. To save money we need to put in some effort. more  
I totally agree with you, government departments should develop their systems to control on this more  
as per India grows, our govt offices also need to grow and work differently then previous. Start work proactively. more
