On the instructions of Uttarakhand Chief Minister Pushkar Singh Dhami, a hi-tech lab has been inaugurated in Dehradun by the State Food Safety and Drug Administration Department to test medicines, medical equipment and cosmetic samples. In this lab, samples are being tested with state-of-the-art machines. Commissioner Food Safety and Drug Administration Department Dr R Rajesh Kumar said that the lab is also likely to get recognition from the National Testing and Calibration Accreditation Board (NABL) soon. After this, the lab testing report will be valid all over the world.
