I have completed my m pharm in pharmacognosy and am interested in RnD as my future career. As in India there is very limited research institutes working on natural products, please let me know if i should do phd in pharmacognosy or QA or pharmacology? Also let me know some good colleges to pursue the same..

Hi, There are very few

There are very few industries in India which are inviting professionals for research after pharmacognosy in compare to pharmacology & QA respesctively.
And Let me tell you that If you are very keen to join R&D of herbal plants or products then M.Pharm is also enough for that. First join in R&D atleast of 1 or 2 year and then think of Ph.D. Even you can choose institutes or industries which will allow you to join Ph.d along with your research work with them. And that would give you, better salary + experience + chance to earn Ph.D degree.
Now if we talk on other areas like pharmacology and QA for Ph.D purpose then I am suggesting you to go for pharmacology. M.pHarm in QA has high value than M.Pharm in pharmacology but it is waste to go for Ph.D in QA as there are limitation in R&D for QA areas. So making career in R&D is not depend on your education... It require inbuilt knowledge in yourself and also some luck to enter in the field.
