We have now a wider conception of the duties and responsibilities of universities.
They have to provide leadership in politics administration, professions, industry
and commerce. They have to meet the increasing demand for every type of higher education,
literacy and scientific, technical and professional. They must enable the country
to attain, in as short a time as possible, freedom from want, disease and ignorance,
by the application and development of scientific and technical knowledge.
Technical education in India contributes a major share to the overall education
system and plays a vital role in the social and economic development of our nation.
In India, technical education is imparted at various levels such as: craftsmanship,
diploma, degree, post-graduate and research in specialized fields, catering to various
aspects of technological development and economic progress.
The beginning of formal Technical Education in India can be dated back to the mid
19th Century. The major policy initiatives in the pre-independence period included
appointment of the Indian Universities Commission in 1902, issue of the Indian Education
policy resolution in 1904 and the Governor General’s policy statement of 1913 stressing
the importance of Technical Education, the establishment of IISc in Bangalore, Institute
for Sugar, Textile and Leather Technology in Kanpur, N.C.E. in Bengal in 1905 and
Industrial schools in several provinces. Significant developments include:
- Constitution of the Technical Education Committee of the Central Advisory Board
of Education (CABE) of 1943;
- Preparation of the Sergeant Report of 1944; and
- Formation of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) in 1945 by the
Government of India.
The pharmacy profession comprising the industrial and practice sectors is undergoing
a rapid change. Indian Pharma industry which has registered a spectacular progress
today ranks 4th in volume and 13th in value in the global pharmaceutical market
with exports worth US Dollars 2.6 billion besides domestic sales amounting to over
US Dollars 4 million.
The ever expanding Pharma's industrial and practice sectors need clinically and
technologically trained pharmacy professionals who can face global challenges and
compete with the multinationals. The pharmacist is no longer a mere dispenser of
drugs but has assumed a more crucial role in medicine management and as overall
health care programmer.
PCI as a pharmacy educationist regulatory body has realized the need to strengthen
and upgrade the pharmacy curriculum to produce competent pharmacist workforce which
is able to meet the growing demands of the industry and community. As a step towards
this direction PCI has proposed some amendments to the Pharmacy Act which have been
submitted to the Health Ministry for approval.
