What is Pharmacy Council of India? Why do the Institutions require PCI approval?
The Pharmacy Council of India is a statutory body constituted under the Pharmacy Act 1948, a Central Act passed by the Parliament to regulate the profession and practice of pharmacy in the country. All students aspiring to pursue any course in Pharmacy for the purpose of registration as a Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act, 1948 should first ensure that the particular institution which they intend to join has been approved by the Pharmacy Council of India for the conduct of the course of study (OR) approved u/s 12 of the Pharmacy Act, 1948. The list of such institutions is displayed on the official website of the Council www.pci.nic.in.
A number of Pharmacy Institutions are functioning in the country without seeking/ obtaining approval from the Pharmacy Council India. The qualifications obtained by students from such institutions which are not approved by the Pharmacy Council, will not entitle such students to register themselves as Pharmacists under Pharmacy Act 1948. The approved pharmacy qualifications for registration as Pharmacist under the Pharmacy Act 1948 are;
- Diploma in Pharmacy (D. Pharm)
- Bachelor of Pharmacy (B.Pharm)
- Pharm. D & Pharm. D (Post Baccalaureate)
It is the responsibility of the institution to obtain the year wise approval of the PCI, u/s 12 of the Pharmacy Act, before the first batch of students passes out from the institution.
