Individual applicants other than doctors and registered medical practitioners, should mandatorily be persons having B. Pharma and D. Pharma Degrees. Any organization applying for a Pradhan Mantri Bhartiya Janaushadhi Kendras will have to employ B. Pharma / D. Pharma degree holders and produce proof of the same at the time of submitting applications. In govt hospital premises including medical colleges, the preferred agency would be reputed NGOs/Charitable organizations but individuals would also be eligible.
