This website is the online public record system about the registration of the clinical trials that got conducted in India and it is free to use. Before the establishment of this record system, the clinical trials were not registered online which limited the access and knowledge of the trials.
The Clinical Trials Registry of India was established as a voluntary initiative in 2007. From the year 2009, Drugs Controller General of India has been made the trial registration in the CTRI obligatory as well. Likewise, the editors of the eleven major biomedical journals in India have announced that only the registered trials would be considered for the publication. Therefore, the registered trials can be freely searched through this website that can also be found on the search portal of WHO. Such registration also means that the registered trials are in compliance with the disclosure of the trial data set items.
