 Karnataka State Pharmacy Council

The Karnataka state pharmacy Council is a statutory body constituted under an Act of Indian parliament called Pharmacy Act 1948 (Act No 8 of 1948), for the purpose of regulating the practice of pharmacy and to prescribe discipline for the same. As could be seen from the narration below the State Council is responsible for the maintenance of state registers of qualified pharmacists. The act further proposes to empower the state government to prohibit the dispensing of medicine on the prescription of a Medical Practitioner other than by or under the direct and personal supervision of, a registered pharmacist.

Pharmacy Regulation

The Government of India brought out various regulatory provisions to control the import, manufacturing, trading and distribution of drugs on the one hand and to regulate the profession that deals with the drugs and cosmetics, the prescription drugs in particular on the other.

The issue of import, manufacturing, trading and distribution of drugs has been well addressed by the Drugs & Cosmetics Act 1940 and the Rules (D&C Act and Rules) made there under.

To support and supplement the objectives of the D&C Act and Rules a separate Act was passed by the Government of India in 1948 with a title Pharmacy Act 1948. The Pharmacy Act restricts the pharmacy practice to the persons possessing minimum educational qualification in pharmacy.

The Pharmacy Act addresses two issues:

  1. Prescribing minimum standards to impart pharmacy education and to conduct examination, which is the responsibility of the Pharmacy Council of India.
  2. Registration and issue of Registration certificate to the persons possessing requisite prescribed qualification is the responsibility of the State Pharmacy Councils

The Act desires the state governments to constitute a Registration Tribunal to Grant registration to the eligible pharmacists possessing requisite qualification as enunciated in Section 32 of the Act and to enforce the provisions of the Pharmacy Act, 1948 pertaining to the practice of pharmacy.

Karnataka State Pharmacy Council was being called Mysore State Pharmacy Council. The Mysore State Pharmacy Council came into existence after the completion of the first register by a tribunal called Mysore State Pharmacy Registration Tribunal.

The "Mysore State Pharmacy Registration Tribunal" was formed by the Government of Mysore in 1967 under the Chairmanship of Dr. Shama Shastri the then Director of Medical services with Sri. K. N. Shanbhogue the then Drugs Controller for the State of Mysore as Member and Sri S. S. Kattishettar the then Assistant Drugs Controller as Member-Secretary.

The Council was first housed in the Drugs Control Department. Sri.K. N. Shanbhogue the then Drugs Controller for the State of Mysore was the first President of the council.

With the change in the name of the State from Mysore to Karnataka in the year 1973 the name of the council was also changed to Karnataka State Pharmacy Council.

The council is governed and managed by the Executive committee and General council constituted as per the Act.

Location

The current building in which the council is housed was built in the year 1997. It has been a monumental structure. Its interiors, though structured a decade ago is comparable in Look and working comfort to any of the modern corporate offices. It has a small compact office, chambers for the Registrar and President, a board room for council meetings and a well equipped seminar hall and a pantry that can accommodate about 40 people. Thanks to the good dream and dedicated efforts of all the past presidents, members, registrars and well wishers and to the good support of the Government of Karnataka.

Registration: Total number of Registered Pharmacists as on 15th November 2011 is 45248.
