ANTI NARCOTIC POLICY AND ACTION PLAN

Introduction
Substance abuse has emerged as a serious concern, adversely affecting the physical and
socio-economic wellbeing of the country. The stress and strain of the modern day life
has rendered the individual more vulnerable to the problem of substance abuse.
Addiction to alcohol and drugs not only affects the individual involved but also the
family and society at large. The system of control of Narcotic Drugs in India has been
put in place considering the requirement of Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic substances
for medical use and the Country’s obligations towards the U.N. Conventions. The basic
legislative instrument of the Government of India in this regard is the Narcotic Drugs
and Psychotropic substance (NDPS) Act 1985.

The aspect of drug supply reduction is looked after by various Enforcement agencies
under the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India and State Governments. The
aspect of drug demand reduction is handled by the Ministry of Social Justice and
Empowerment and that of treatment of Drug addicts and their rehabilitation falls under
the domain of the Ministry of Health, Government of India.

A major problem arising from the misuse of Narcotic substance is that users are at the
risk of developing psychological and physical dependence. In 1964 WHO recommended
the term “dependence” should replace “addiction” and “habituation” as dependence
can exist in different degree of severity, unlike addiction which tends to be an “all or
nothing “disease.

Prevalence of substance abuse is increasing in an alarming proportion in the College


and Universities. Hence to prevent students from abusing Drugs and Alcohol is the need
of the hour in the interest of students, family, society and the country.

To promote an equitable, supporting and informed environment among the student


community and to develop their resilience so that they make healthy lifestyle choices,
the Anti-Narcotic Policy and Action Plan in the form of guidelines has been prepared.
