DCA awareness drive

The Drug Control Administration (DCA) Department is organising public awareness programmes at Tenali, Narasaraopet and Guntur on August 14, 17 and 18 respectively as per the instructions of district Collector B. Ramanjaneyulu.

Officers of the DCA and the Medical and Health Department will speak on the entire gamut of issues pertaining to drugs being sold in the market and what people should do to protect themselves from spurious/sub-standard drugs.

Addressing a review meeting with drug control authorities here on Wednesday, Mr. Ramanjaneyulu said several instances of sale of spurious drugs and expired ones came to his notice. He warned of stringent action against those playing with people's lives.

Medical shops, which fail to comply with the rules, face penal action after August 16.
