  3. On 29th and 30th July 2019 an inspection team of the Central Council of Indian Medicine visited Chagpori. They visited the College at Takdah, the pharmacy at Salugara and the office-cum-clinic at Darjeeling. The main purpose of their visit was the inspection of the facilities at Chagpori, for the recognition of Chagpori as a Sowa Rigpa College.

  4. Chagpori needs to upgrade its facilities at the College to fulfil the requirements, as per the guidelines of the Central Council of Indian Medicine. We will be shifting the College to Salugara where it is possible to have all the requirements as laid down by the CCIM.

  5. Presently there are 22 students undergoing their studies in two classes. The 7th batch is undergoing their internship and the 8th batch is in their fourth year of studies.

  6. Our clinic at Takdah shifted at a new location since May. It is a bigger place than the previous one. The clinic at Salugara also shifted to the new pharmacy premise since December 2018.
    Chagpori celebrated its Silver Jubilee on 20th Dec 2018. We would like to gratefully acknowledge our benefactors who have supported Chagpori through the years.
