Well, technically it is a risk to fake the document and unfortunately so, we in India are badly reputed globally (especially in the US) for faking the credentials.
Don't give undue importance to the opportunity at the cost of information correctness. Speak to the pharma guys of the reality and inform them that the CV would not reflect your experience for good reasons.
If you fake the CV once, tomorrow you might become a very senior consultant of high repute but the fake CV would get you dumped of the good image and haunt you for the small hitch.
If the pharma company does not respect your transparency and appreciate your fair play, clearly that is not the best opportunity and probably they would not have much respect for your contributions in long run.
Hope the suggestion helps.

Actually I started my clinic only after registration... but the thing is registration of the clinic is not required when you have licence to practice...
For example when some one start up a company he gets a particular registration number for the company..... such registration number or process is not there for clinic.
And secondly... for formulating an experience certificate do i need to write my own that i was running this clinic, these were my responsibilities and sign it or there are any other ways to do so.

Greetings for the day ahead!!!!
You can not have an experience certificate from somebody for the simple reason that you were your own ultimate authority. Had you been working in a hospital , it could have been different and you could have taken relevant certificate from appropriate authority.
Having said that , you can definitely produce your CV which may include details of work done, till date. As far as work section is concerned, you can include details about kind of patients handled, kinds of disease treated, which all skills you acquired while running your own clinic. You may also include a brief section on how your entrepreneurial exposure ( running a clinic does have a business end) blended with medical practice can be handy in a pharma research job.
Hope it helps.

Don't formulate an experience certificate. it would be invalid as it would be signed by you for yourself.:-)
You problem is simplified with drafting the CV with your 4 years experience with a few good cases to highlight your expertise but mentioning the span of 4 years professional service.

S. Bhaskar has given a very good suggestion--taking testimonials from beneficiaries / patients treated by you.
Even though you are getting into the Research area[where Letters from patients may not be given high value] from handling patients, such documents will form your career record. In case you want to get into patient-handling roles again in the future, it may not be possible for you to get all such documents at that point of time.
Also, I am sure you must have thought-out this career switch very carefully from all angles, since from the medical career viewpoint, it's a major one.
Also to add to what Team GroupHR mentioned about preparing your Resume/CV, in case you have done any Procedures, pl don't forget to include them, however minor. Usually in research-oriented jobs, prior practical exp counts for a lot. Also, if you were part of any Clinical trials effort [legal, i.e., since many doctors get into this area without documents], remember to mention that effort too.
All the Best.
