SALEM: The demolition of a dozen old buildings that till recently housed many government offices began here on Monday. These buildings, situated near the Government Medical College Hospital, are being pulled down to facilitate the construction of a Rs. 120-crore super speciality hospital on the lines of the All India Institute of Medical Sciences.

Workers started pulling down the office of the Superintendent of Police, on Monday. The office had been shifted to new premises in the city a month back. The other buildings that would be demolished included the tahsildhar's office, a few court buildings and museum building. Most of these buildings were constructed by the British. The building in which the SP office functioned was built during the 1880s.

Tamil Nadu Government should hand over the land to the Union Ministry of Health before the end of next month for works on super specialty hospital to begin.

An expert team, which inspected the hospital, earlier this month, had announced that once the land was handed over, the construction would begin immediately and completed in 22 months.

Already the committee members have held a meeting with the heads of departments of the hospital. The Government would construct a building at a cost of Rs. 12 crore on the hospital premises to house in-patients.
