The National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill, 2021 has been passed in the Lok Sabha.

The Lok Sabha on Monday passed a Bill that seeks to accord special status to six more institutes of pharmaceutical education and research as well as set up a council for these institutes.

The current bill, which will amend the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research Act, 1998, that established the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER), at Mohali in Punjab, will encourage high quality research as it accords the status of Institutions of National Importance to six more institutes at:

  • Ahmedabad,
  • Guwahati,
  • Hajipur,
  • Hyderabad,
  • Kolkata,
  • Rae Bareli.

In reply to the debate on the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill, 2021, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya countered the Opposition over a range of health issues, including ‘vaccine hesitancy’.

Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya said all seven National Institutes of Pharmaceutical Education and Research will have the same enhanced status after Parliament gives its nod to the bill and new NIPERs will also automatically enjoy similar provisions.
