PUNE In an interesting trend this year, there is an increase in the number of colleges offering a diploma in pharmacy this year.

As of date, 100 per cent admissions have been reported for the course (D-Pharmacy) this academic year. For the last 1.5 years, medical stores and the entire pharma sector have seen a spike in business, which has attracted students.

As per information given by the state Common Entrance Test (CET) cell, in the academic year 2021-22 a total of 30,049 seats were available for the D-Pharmacy course in 462 pharmacy institutes across the state.

In 2020-21 there were 28,402 seats available in 427 colleges, which means an increase of 1,647 seats and 35 new pharmacy colleges this year.

The last two years have been very tough for our family. My father passed away due to C-19, and now I have completed my Class 12 and have taken admissions for a pharmacy course. Medical stores did good business during the lockdown.

Even the pharma companies were hiring people. So I decided to pursue a career in this field and accordingly have taken admission, ” said Shankar Yedve, a student.

Another student, Mangesh Chavan, said, “There are various career opportunities after pursuing the pharmacy course, not just a medical shop.

The pandemic has shown us how important the medical and pharmacy sector is and so I chose to pursue a career in this field.”

Talking about this trend, Ramdas Zol, president of the Association for the Management of Unaided Institutes in the rural area, said, “Once the student completes a diploma in pharmacy, s/he gets a legal licence to start his own medical store or mall.

And we have seen a demand for medical stores in the last two years due to the pandemic. This has attracted students. Also, many pharmacy companies are continuously hiring students for their business growth, for which the D-Pharmacy course is the basic qualification. ”
