SYLLABUS FOR B. PHARM.
All India Council for Technical Education
7th Floor, Chander Lok Building, Janpath, New Delhi
FOREWORD
All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) established as a statutory body by the
Government of India through Act No.52 of 1987 has been broadly vested with the
responsibility of coordinated and integrated development of technical education in the
country.
The AICTE in fulfillment of its responsibility has prepared a model course
curriculum/syllabus for B.Pharm. after taking suggestions inputs from various eminent
academicians and industry with a view to cater the existing, as well as, growing needs of
the industry profession and to help in producing technical manpower who will be able to
face the global challenges.
I am sure that the academia of different universities will use this structure in framing their
syllabi.
I take this opportunity to express my deep appreciation for the valuable work done by the
various experts and the persons entrusted with the responsibility of coordinating the said
work.
