Almost all the government pharmaceutical institutes provide admission based on GPAT scores. But some private universities may provide you direct admission to M.Pharma. courses without qualifying GPAT in case of vacant seats. Your total fees (for 2 years) will range from 4 to 8 lakhs, depending on the institution. You can get some relaxation in your fees amount by obtaining a good rank in the entrance exam conducted by that particular institution. One good example is Lovely Professional University, Phagwara (which conducts LPUNEST).
Visit the official website of the institute you are interested in for more information. Or kindly mention the college/university name in the comment section.
