Vij issued directions that people should get quality products and that they should be ensured safety before use.

Vij said four new facilities would be set up at Gurgaon, Panchkula, Bhiwani and Hansi as there is no high-standard laboratory in the state for testing food samples. The labs at Chandigarh and Karnal would be modernized and upgraded.

There is also a proposal to set up a laboratory to test Ayurvedic medicines. Vij said that an action plan has also been prepared to enhance the efficiency of Senior Drug Control Officers (SDCOs) and Drug Control Officers (DCOs).

Under the plan, no officer would continue to function for more than a year at one station. They would be transferred every year to ensure efficiency and honesty and the working of SDCOs and DCOs would be monitored.
