NEW DELHI: In a bid to deliver quality medicines to the public, the Union Cabinet today approved a proposal to regulate education and practice of pharmacy in Indian medicine and homoeopathy by deciding to introduce legislation on the issue in Parliament.

The proposed legislation, called Indian Medicine and Homoeopathy Pharmacy Bill 2005, seeks to set up Central Pharmacy Council to regulate education and practice of pharmacists of Ayurveda, Siddha, Unani and Homoeopathy, Defence Minister Pranab Mukherjee said after a cabinet meeting.

The bill also seeks to maintain a register of pharmacists and bring uniformity in the standards of pharmacy education in these disciplines and enable bringing quality in identification, collection, preservation and manufacturing of medicines.

The manufacturing units and retail outlets would ensure that institutionally-qualified personnel with scientific knowledge should manage the medicines in these disciplines, Mukherjee said.
