Pharmacy degree colleges can start diploma pharmacy from 2017-18

 

Dr. Anshu Kataria, President, PUCA said that now the colleges can temporarily reduce their intake against the seats which were not being filled and later on can restore whenever needed without National Board of Accreditation (NBA). “This will help in reducing the financial burden and other resources from the ailing unaided Colleges” Kataria added.
