Pharmaceutical Distributors are the part of pharmaceutical distribution channel who supply pharmaceutical products to retailers, hospitals, pharmacies, resellers and institutions etc.

Wholesale drug license is issued by licensing authority (Drug inspector or specify by state government) under district drug control office. This wholesale drug license is same in case of wholesaler, distributor, stockist, CFA, pharma marketing company etc.

If a wholesaler want to sell drugs specified in Schedule X then he has to take license on Form 20G for it.

For taking wholesale drug license, licensee has to compile with the specifications of drug and cosmetic act & rules. A license should have minimum of 10 square meters premises area and all activity are conducted under the supervision of competent person who is either a registered pharmacist, or has passed the matriculation examination or its equivalent examination from a recognised Board with four years‘ experience in dealing with sale of drugs, or holds a degree of a recognised University with one year‘s experience in dealing with drugs.

Along with Wholesale Drug LicenseGoods and Service Tax Number (GSTIN) is also mandatory for licensee having more than 40 lakh annual turnover but most of distributors and wholesalers are in interstate trading which make it compulsory to have GST number.
