About BCDA College of Pharmacy and Technology


Bengal Chemists & Druggists Association (B.C.D.A.) established in 1921; is the oldest organization in the trade of medicine in India. It has approximately 32,000 members in all over West Bengal and the motto of the organization is “Service to Humanity”. Since its inception in 1921, under the Companies Act 1913, the association is providing consistent service to the society & its members, which provided an opportunity to the BCDA authority to understand scarcity of qualified pharmacist in the areas like medical shop, community & hospital services, nursing homes, clinical pharmacies etc. and also realized that the number of pharmacists catering in West Bengal are not enough. To face challenges ahead in the profession of pharmacy and also to fulfill the cherished dream of few predecessors, BCDA ventured to start a pharmacy college under its own management and founded BCDA Members Benevolent Trust.
