To avail all these services, the pharmacists need not visit the council office, rather they can apply through online.
“Now, at the click of a button the pharmacists can avail all services from the pharmacy council without any physical exertion”, said Ajay Sharma, president of the council.
Sharma said by using this high tech facility, the registered pharmacists can also apply for registration with the Delhi Pharmacy Council Welfare Trust (DPCWT) which provides an insurance coverage of Rs one lakh to the family of the member.
Any registered pharmacist can become a member of the council trust until he completes 65 years of age. The one-time registration fee is Rs 1,600 plus GST. Over 16,000 pharmacists have registered with the trust as members. The total number of registered pharmacists in Delhi is 33,000.
Ajay Sharma said the council has appointed Kuldeep Singh as the new Registrar for the council following the retirement of SL Nasa after 33 years of service. Singh is working in the health department under the Delhi government and the registrar post is an additional charge.

He said the council has applied for two acres of land property to construct a permanent office building and it is expected any time from the Delhi Development Authority. Meanwhile, the present office building located at Vidhan Sabha in Civil Lines has been renovated and the office set up modernized.
“We have entirely renovated the council building and a new look has been given to it. Once we get the land from the DDA, we will construct our own council building,” Sharma expressed hope.
