MP K.Haribabu has urged the Union Health Minister J.P. Nadda to establish the office of the Assistant Drug Controller here in view of the city turning into a pharmaceutical hub.

In a letter to the Union Minister, he said that apart from a pharma city and pharma SEZ, 85 pharma units were likely to start production in 2018. With the international air cargo terminal becoming operational and the availability of ports, export of pharma products is also likely to pick up.

With office of the ADC not located in the city, they had to take products to Hyderabad and Chennai, said the MP.
