State may hike intake in pharmaceutical colleges

Staff Correspondent

MYSORE: Minister for Medical Education S.A. Ramdas has said the State Government plans to increase the number of B.Pharm, M.Pharm and D.Pharm graduates to meet the requirement for pharmaceutical professionals.

“We have also proposed to increase the number of pharmaceutical professionals with Ph.D. All this will be done without compromising on quality,” the Minister announced.

Speaking at the valedictory function of the four-day national conference on ‘Management of Alzheimer's disease – role of herbal pharmacotherapy' at Sarada Vilas College of Pharmacy here on Friday, the Minister said the pharma industry's human resources were critically inadequate, and it had become necessary to create sufficient human manpower.

The conference was sponsored by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

Mr. Ramdas said pharma graduates would be linked to pharma industries.

“We are taking a decision on increasing the number of PG seats in pharma courses,” he added.
