Dear Sir,

Since you are not manufacturing you need not apply for an Excise Certification.

But you will have to apply for a VAT TIN Number in your state as well as an Import Excise License if you have plans to export the medicines as well.

Trust this clarifies your query. 

Feel free to get back/ call back in case of further details. 

Thanking You.

Dear Sir,

Here under is a basic checklist for every budding entrepreneur:
1. PAN & TAN
2. VAT TIN
3. Service Tax - if you have commission income
4. Import Excise License (IEC Code)
5. Shop Establishment/ Trade License.

There are various numerous trade/ labour compliances like PF/ ESIC/ ELF/ Fire Insurance/ Property Insurance/ ROC Compliances/ etc which may or may not be applicable to you for which you may need to consult a professional on a one to one basis to understand your business and then guide you in the best possible manner.

Sorry but we live in a Country where NO Straight jacket list of taxation & Legal requirement can be provided to a client on a whole.

Trust this clarifies your query.
