These four students were also felicitated at the campus today as she said, “PIMS is steadily making a name in the academics by winning President Award for the best institute in India for splendid work of education in drug de-addiction. PIMS was first one to start RT PCR Lab (NABL accredited) in the Doaba region where the report was given same day with capacity of doing nearly 300 samples a day.”
