For notifying the post and its basic qualification, PCI has amended the Pharmacy Practice Regulations (PPR) 2015 with a regulation called Pharmacy Practice Regulations 2021 which came into effect on the day of its notification in the government gazette.

The regulation (PPR 2021) will be added in Appendix III under the heading – “7B Details of Position, Title and Job Responsibilities of Clinical Pharmacist” where the duties and responsibilities of the clinical pharmacist will be mentioned.

The associations of Pharm D graduates and students, institutions and faculties across the country have welcomed the notification.

Sir This is good decision, but what about the pharmacist who done their PG in Clinical Pharmacy etc,etc. The future of these guys in deep dark so please think about these M.Pharma guys who did their masters in clinical pharmacy. They are since a long time when Pharm D was not exist in India. So they are also clinical pharmacist. Why PCI don't think about them. Qualifications for clinical pharmacist should be Pharm D and M. Pharma clinical Pharmacy

The PCI  has amended Pharmacy Practice regulation 2015 and notified in the Gazette of India. By this amendment the council projected two new category of pharmacists that are fictional, not functioning in our country. The council has its own intensions?  Pharmacy education regulation is a regulation connected with education only. PCI is constituted for regulating  Pharmacy Education in India and  it is not empowered to create any post in any health settings.This amendment may mislead  Pharm.D students and Pharmacists.
