Director’s Desk: :
The district Hooghly has a rich heritage from time immemorial. Before the inception of the British in Calcutta, a couple of European countries started their establishment in the eastern part of this district keeping the mark of signature of their Education, Culture, Art, Architecture and Craft. All the goodness of those foreigners had been synergized by the advent of the later (British) who spreaded their vast empire making the epicenter at Calcutta which was also the capital of British India. The fact is that being situated in the same bank of river Hooghly or river Ganges at a meager distance from Calcutta, all the style-fashion-culture blended with discipline, punctuality & ingenuity diffused and intruded this neighbouring district. The serendipity is that the district is recognised as the most elevated region of the whole of Bengal. Now inheriting the heredity of those foreigners for more than three centuries together with the modern India’s embossed finger-print, we will have to do a lot of attempts and endeavours for the development of the district. Since the index of development of any nation is equated or measured with its upgraded position in Health we are giving emphasis on this education. The fact is that the total Pharmaceutical Arena in India is in a very remarkable position and by virtue of that our Hon’ble Chairman Sir & Hon’ble Secretary Sir have incepted this institution which needs the colossal cooperation of all of us to reign with majesty.
