Doctor's consultation not affordable even to middle class. To avoid selling medicines without prescription, all chemists to have a doctor to diagnose and prescribe medicines. Prescription of the doctor should carry name of doctor on the chemists letter/ bill, which should have full signature of the doctor with his registration details. This way selling medicines without proper prescription can be eliminated. more  
It is quite common in India. As rightly said, chemists sell without issuing bills not customers are not very particular in getting the same. Customers who get reimbursement from his/her employer, only insist for bills. Again cash settlement is rampant so it is very difficult to change this routine. There must be system of billing with the prescription scanned. Government must formulate regulation for this more  
There is need to change the mindset of people. Self medication is very harmful and lead to serious side effects which proves fatal especially for poor people. Quacks should also be banned to practice medicines. more  
Dr Consultation costing much even to middle Class more  
It is mostly the poor who get medicines without prescription. They cannot afford the doctor fees and the medicines they prescribe. And to go to govt hospitals is a nightmare for them. more  
Issue of medicine without a prescription is not so dangerous or harmful as purchasing a medicine without a proper receipt. If no receipt is issued by the chemist, than the chances are the medicine would be spurious or stolen or illegal or substandard. Any chemist when he issues a medicine he is suppose to issue a receipt that should indicate the expiry date and manufacturing batch number. With a proper receipt and in case of any doubt about the medicine it is easy to know the genuineness of the medicine purchased. more
