Bhutanese who depend on medicines imported from Jaigaon will have to wait as medicines, even if prescribed, are not being delivered beyond Phuentsholing.
There are at least 10 to 12 “parcels” at the Bhutan Post Corporation Limited (BPCL) office in Phuentsholing. Out of these, eight are ordered from Thimphu and others are from Sipsu, Trashigang and Samdrupjongkhar.
At the gate: Bhutan Post official receives medicines from Jaigaon
Every Wednesday and Friday, BPCL officials in Phuentsholing receive the medicines at the main gate. Prior to this, patients have to call the Dolma Pharmacy in Jaigaon and order their medicine. They can make e-payment.
The medicines are quarantined for a night and then distributed the next day in Phuentsholing.
