Minimum Qualification for Registration as a Pharmacist in India

The minimum qualification for registration as a pharmacist in India is a pass in "Diploma course in pharmacy" from an institution recognized by the PCI. Persons holding "Degree in Pharmacy" from an institution recognized by the PCI are also eligible for registration as a pharmacist. Section 10 of the Pharmacy Act empowers the PCI to frame regulations called Education Regulations (E R) prescribing the minimum standard of education required for qualification as a pharmacist. These regulations have been revised from time to time to keep pace with the latest developments in the field of pharmaceutical Sciences.

The PCI has decided to upgrade the minimum qualification for registration as a pharmacist from Diploma to Degree in Pharmacy and this decision of the PCI is under consideration of the Ministry of Health and F.W., New Delhi.
