Dr. R. Lalthangliana, Minister of State for Health & Family Welfare laid foundation stone for construction of Rs. 300 lakh Mizoram State Drug Testing Laboratory building at Mizoram New Capital Complex (MINECO) today.

Speaking at the occasion, the Minister highlighted the importance of having State Drug Testing Laboratory by saying that once it is completed, we will be able to test not only medicines but food items imported from outside the state as well as produced in the state, and the hassle of sending food and medicine samples to Guwahati for testing which is also time consuming, will be a thing of the past.

Mizoram Technocrats Company Pvt. Ltd. has been selected to construct Mizoram State Drug Testing Laboratory building, which is located near Mizoram Pollution Control Board (MPCB), and will be completed within 18 months.

Dr. Z.R.Thiamsanga, MLA, Vice- Chairman, Health & Family Welfare Board and important officials from Health & Family Welfare Department are present at the event.
