Tribune News Service

CHANDIGARH, Feb 7 Work on construction of the roof of cobalt unit in block D of the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, started today following a decision at the technical committee meeting to complete construction of blocks C and D of the institute.

Prof S.B.S. Mann, Director-Principal, GMCH, said block C was likely to be completed by September. The 225-crore GMCH was originally scheduled to be completed in 1999. At the meeting of representatives of the hospital and the UT Administration, it was decided to give the contract to the same contractor as he had agreed to work on old rates.

Block C is almost complete. The work was stalled about two-an-a-half years back following an inquiry by the Central Vigilance Commission when a part of one of the blocks under construction fell, causing the death of one person. With the commissioning of the general wards with 250 beds, besides 14 operation theatres, the hospital would start functioning to its capacity of 500 beds.
