Pharmaceutical chemistry is definitely having a bright future. Almost in every pharma company and leading bio research institutes there is a regular need for such professionals. If you are pursuing the M.Pharma course in India it is always better you go for GATE or other pharmacy specific exams and secure a seat in any of the NIPERS. The other option in India is going for private Institutes in Bangalore or in Hyderabad. There are specific entrance tests in several Universities in the country for this course, you can opt one or more for your admission.
From both industry and academic point of view, Pharmaceutical chemistry is always a challenging course that will have excellent growth in career. CSIR will give you the opportunity to pursue the doctoral degree in the subject that you can do well without CSIR also. NIPER is having their own fellowship for doctoral. Moreover its better to have some industrial experience and pursue Ph.D from abroad. The level of Ph.D in India is not commendable as suggested by the recent crux for post doctoral fellowship.
