It is being produced at the Haringhata and Salt Lake Campuses on war footing. Initially it has been distributed amongst the staff of MAKAUT. Prof. Maitra said, “MAKAUT will soon produce it in a large scale, so that the needy common people and various Government Departments can get it free of cost.”
