State urged to take over Pharmacy College

State urged to take over Pharmacy College

Several organisations and dignitaries of the City came together to send a joint memorandum to the State Revenue Minister demanding the State Government to take over the Pharmacy College situated at Mohuda near the City.

Berhampur MLA RCC Patnaik, President and Secretary of the Ganjam Bar Association, Utkal Sammilani, Bharatiya Mazdoor Sangh, Ganjam Zilla Vikas Manch, Working Pharmacists Association, Sarpanch of Mohuda were among the persons and organisations that made this request. The group that made the request pointed out that in every State there is at least one Government managed Pharmacy College. But there were none in Orissa.

The College of Pharmaceutical Sciences (CPS), Mohuda which was established in 1979 as a cooperative endeavour is now suffering from severe management problems. It was established through the joint efforts of the Orissa chapter of the Indian Pharmaceutical Association, Berhampur municipality and Ganjam - Phulbani Chemists and Druggists' Association (GPCDA). Since its inception the GPCDA used to play a major role in its management.

Established on an area of 23 acres this Institute was the first Pharmacy College in the State to provide graduate and post graduate courses. Former President of India A.P.J.Abdul Kalam had inaugurated a cancer chemo - therapy centre on its campus.

It also provides courses in bio - technology and microbiology. Demands are on for its takeover by the State Government as it is facing management problems during past three years. The management tussle has reached the court of law and the State Drugs Controller has now been made its Management Head as per a directive of the court.
