Parliament: Rajya Sabha to take up pharma institutes Bill today

New Delhi: On Thursday, the Centre would present the 'National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (Amendment) Bill 2021' to the Rajya Sabha for deliberation and approval. Mansukh Mandaviya, the Union Health Minister, will move the Bill during House proceedings, which will begin afternoon.

The Bill, which was passed by the Lok Sabha on Monday, aims to give special status to six more institutes of pharmaceutical education and research, as well as establish a council for them. On March 15, this year, the Bill was originally introduced in the Lok Sabha. The current bill, which amends the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research Act, 1998, which established the National Institute of Pharmaceutical Education and Research (NIPER) in Mohali, Punjab, will promote high-quality research by designating six more institutes as Institutions of National Importance in Ahmedabad, Guwahati, Hajipur, Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Rae Bareli.

An independent institute formed by an Act with the authority to take examinations, confer degrees, certificates, and other academic distinctions or titles is referred to as an Institution of National Importance. The central government provides financing to these important national institutes. The Bill establishes a Council to manage the work of the institutes established by the Bill in order to ensure the advancement of pharmaceutical education and research as well as the maintenance of standards.
