Dear Friends,

We believe that a Nation can progress only if masses are educated. Education results in growth; both within one self and in one’s surrounding. Education is the key which will lead India from being a developing country to a developed nation.National Centre for Rural Development (NCRD), a registered public charitable trust, was founded in 1991. During the course of its various activities aimed at the upliftment of rural youth, NCRD realized, early on, that true rural development was not possible without the basic education for the rural folk. With this view in mind, in the year 1993 it established a school in Ambegaon in Pune district which was then a very backward area.

This educational voyage has continued and now the trust has to its credit two primary schools, three agricultural vocational institutes, six high schools and seven colleges. In the year 2003-04, NCRD widened its educational activities and established the NCRD’S Institute of Pharmacy.

The institute is bringing qualitative excellence in terms of results, infrastructural facilities, well equipped laboratories, student amenities, well organized library, and computer centre with internet access & competent faculty.The pharmacy education based on innovative entrepreneurship, social orientation & competence by global standards ought to be promoted. I wish that in the years to come the college will equip to meet the future challenges. The principal & faculty will continue their relentless “Pursuit for excellence.
