The Agricultural College Dispensary, the more than century old, established in 1915, has the status of being the State Special Urban Dispensary, since 1924. This dispensary has the reputation of providing ungrudging health services, earlier to the soldiers of the British Defense, and now to all the students, members of the staff and their families, and to pensioners and their families. The dispensary was housed at the barracks opposite to the main building of the College of Agriculture, Pune. Later on in 1958, it was shifted to the existing building at Wakadewadi Gate of the College. Several diseases were treated at this dispensary by committed doctors since from its inception. Quite a few of these diseases are unknown to the present day younger generation of our country, some of which includes Cholera, Syphilis, Kala azar, Leprosy, Plague, Small Pox, Tuberculosis, Opium Poisoning, Beriberi etc.
