About the Department


With the inspiration of Late Mahamana Pandit Madan Mohan Malaviya and with the untiring zeal and enthusiasm of Late Professor M.L.Schroff (Father of Pharmacy Education in India), this Department was established as early as in 1932. This is the first Institution in the country to start the Degree level Pharmacy Education and can claim to be the pioneering center for Pharmacy Education in the Asian, African and Far-East region of the world.
