How a PCD Pharma Franchises is Different from a General Pharma Franchises

Actual Difference of PCD Pharma Franchise and General Pharma Franchise

As you want to start your career with pharma industries in India, you must have basic knowledge of terms General Pharma Franchise and PCD Pharma Franchise. And then choose which one of these you want to explore. Be smart entrant. Search for every pros and con. Then go with the best choice available.


This is a key difference between these two, and actually, the size of sale decides the size of your business. In short: the larger the sales regions, the bigger the business size. And General Pharma Franchise is larger in size as compare to PCD Pharma Franchise or we can consider PCD Pharma Franchise as a smaller version of General Pharma Franchise. Hence, you can conclude from this difference that PCD Pharma needs less experience to start a franchise.

Also, PCD Pharma has a small sales target as compared to the latter. Therefore, you can complete your targets on time and can reach success at an early stage.


As the size is small in the case of PCD Pharma, that means you need less investment to start a business in it.

You see, Less Invest leads to lesser risk. Also if we have a look at Return of Investment then as soon as you complete your targets, you will get a bigger ROI on sales.

So being a starter, it is safe to invest in a small scale business. As chances of failure are lower and you can easily arrange a small amount to invest in this business.


As we have told you in starting that size of sale and investment is small, therefore, you do not need any professional certificate to handle small scale business. All you need to start a PCD Pharma Franchise is some networking skills and a good consistency to maintain that network.

Whereas to start a General Pharma Franchise you need big networks and at least 10 years experience so that you can handle the big losses.


Product Catalogue is maintaining a proper list of available products in your stocks. For which you need big software and large workforce that means you need a lot of money to an investment.
And if you failed to maintain the accurate list alone then you can be considered as a fraud distributor. And sometimes during the case of General Pharma Franchise, entrepreneurs are not able to keep track of billions of products. Hence, without any intentions of fooling their customers, they still pursue a bad reputation.

So if you are an entrant, and you don’t want the mess in the starting, we advise you to choose PCD Pharma Franchise to start your safe career.


In PCD Pharma Franchise, all you need is a good relationship with your retailers, chemist, and doctors. And this is too easy to maintain if you have good networking skills and high passion for success.

Whereas for general pharma franchise you need a strong team and tricks to create a big network.


As we can easily conclude from the above descriptions that the key difference between PCD Pharma Franchise and General Pharma Franchise are Cost and Size.
