Soon, Pakistanis are to witness the establishment of a world-class Science Enclave in the country. Punjab Science Enclave will be constructed on land next to Punjab Forensic Science Agency at Thokar Niaz Baig, Lahore.
The project will comprise a spacious auditorium, an Admin Block of Punjab Agriculture Food & Drug Authority (PAFDA) and modern testing laboratories spreading over an area of 64 Kanal.
It is also said to contain three separate laboratories to test chemical fertilizers/pesticides, edible items, and drugs for human consumption.
The Science Enclave will be a seven-floor high-rise recta-linear building whose initial cost is estimated to be Rs.1.5 billion. Around Rs.4 billion will be spent on procurement of state-of-the-art equipment for the enclave where the entire project will be completed with a total cost of around Rs. 6 billion.
The provincial government promises to provide the world class standard in the laboratory testing of drugs, food items, and agricultural inputs. This establishment will prove to be of a great significance as after the whole fake milk fiasco we need better testing laboratories to keep the relevant checks on various products whether of food or any other purposes..
