After obtaining a pharmacist certificate and licence, you can open a pharmacy shop. In india it is a compulsory rule that a pharmacist must be present during the pharmacy shop's working hours.
    A pharmacy shop need a space of 150 sq.ft and above.
    there should hospitals or clinics nearby.
    You can also open in a hospital by taking respective permissions from the hospital.
    You also have to fulfill the concerned paperwork from government(registration, etc).
    After clearing all the formalities, you have to modify your shop in such a way that in runs successfully.
    Construct a good furniture with shelves and glass displays.
