No activity has been taken by the Central government to deal with this issue even after rehashed portrayals by the PCI and drug store experts before. In 2015, PCI made an interest to all the pharmaceutical affiliations, drug store experts and new graduates to meet up on one stage to press for a solitary controlling body for the drug store instruction in the nation. Not a lot happened even after that interest. PCI is disturbed mostly on the grounds that AICTE is additionally authorizing new drug store schools and directing periodical assessments of these organizations without the learning of PCI. In perspective of this, there is disarray existing among the drug store universities, understudies and basic man as to which expert is really mindful to guarantee measures for the drug store instruction and the calling. Presently, the State Pharmacy Council of Kerala has gotten a determination into the focal board meeting of the PCI a week ago by and by encouraging the Central government to get rid of the AICTE control on drug store courses in the nation.
PCI is the specialist endowed just to set out the educational module and other instructive standards for different drug store courses in the nation. AICTE, then again, has the statutory energy to direct the instructive projects in building, innovation, design, town arranging, administration, connected expressions and specialties, lodging administration and providing food innovation other than choosing benchmarks of degree and PG programs in drug store led by scholarly organizations subsidiary to different colleges. Consistently AICTE conducts examinations of drug store universities amid the December – January period. PCI additionally sends its authorities to drug store schools for directing similar examinations consistently. AICTE has been conceded the specialist to endorse new drug store universities as drug store training is thought to be a specialized instruction. It is a direct result of the presence of these two bodies doing likewise work, the quantity of drug store schools has gone up to unwanted levels in the nation today. A considerable lot of the drug store schools have no sufficient number of staff and even essential foundation influencing nature of the experts turning out. Drug store instruction should be intermittently enhanced a ton from the present level if India needs to achieve worldwide benchmarks. For accomplishing this, it would be perfect that a solitary expert like PCI is made responsible for directing and creating it. AICTE as of now has the duty to supervise a few other specialized training programs in the nation.
