The SAC which met on May 29, under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik has approved the creation of 31 posts of different categories for the Mother and Childcare Hospital (MCH), Reasi.

MCH, Reasi came into existence in 2015. As the centre has been witnessing a huge rush of patients from various areas, particularly from the villages, there was a pressing requirement of strengthening it further in terms of manpower.

SAC has approved the creation of 31 posts which includes 09 Doctors and 22 Para-Medics. With the creation of these posts, MCH, Reasi would be better equipped to offer efficient and effective patient care services.

The Health & Medical Education Department has been asked to examine the feasibility of the establishment of Mother and Child Care/ Maternity Hospitals in the districts where such facilities are not available.

Meanwhile, SAC under the chairmanship of Governor Satya Pal Malik has approved re-organization of the Drugs and Food Control Organization (D&FCO), J&K into a single line command to secure effective Drugs and Food Regulation under a unified command without any financial commitment.

As per the decision, the post of Commissioner of Food Safety, J&K has been re-designated as Commissioner, Food and Drugs Administration, J&K. The Drugs and Food Control Organization has been re-organized by way of up-gradation/re-designation of the post of Controller, Drugs and Food Control Organization in the pay level-12 (78800-209200) to the level-13 (123100-215900) as State Drugs Controller. The post of Deputy Controller, Drugs and Food Control Organization have been re-designated as Deputy Drugs Controller, the post of Drug Inspector has been re-designated as Drugs Control Officer.

The augmentation of manpower in the Drug Testing and Food Testing Laboratories, besides creation of posts of Intelligence-cum-Legal Cell and other creations/up-gradations, will enable the Organization to accomplish the underlying objectives.

The re-designation of the post of Commissioner of Food Safety, J&K as Commissioner, Food and Drugs Administration will bring both the Drugs and Food Wings under a unified command and ensure better coordination and proper utilization of functioning of the post of Commissioner, Food and Drugs Administration, avoid overlap of activities and better coordination.
