Land acquisition process for health project in progress

Staff Reporter

The State government keen on its speedy implementation

BHUBANESWAR: The Orissa government has decided to transfer 91.465 acres of land in favour of the Union Health and Family Welfare Department at Re. 1 premium for establishment of the institution like prestigious All India Institute of Medical Science here.

About 93 acres of land has already been acquired for the project which is going on at Sijua-Ransinghpur area on the outskirts of the capital city. The land, however, was not transferred legally. The State Cabinet sought expeditious implementation of the project.

Cost of the land, which is being provided for AIIMS project, is Rs. 21.09 crores. The transfer of land is to take place within two weeks of the Cabinet meeting.

It was proposed that AIIMS, Bhubaneswar, would have 150 seats in MBBS programme and the first batch of students is expected to be admitted from 2013.

As per the plan, the institute would have a 978-bed hospital, besides 15 super speciality and 18 speciality wards.

At present, construction of housing complex comprising residences for staff and hostels for students is progressing at a fast pace.

Tenders for construction of hospital and medical college will soon be awarded to interested parties.

The road connectivity to the project, which the State government has promised, faced a hurdle.

About 1.5 acres of private land falls in the middle of the road connecting the national highway and the project.

Water facility

Regarding drinking water facility for the project, permission from National Highway Authority of India has been obtained to lay drinking water pipe beneath the NH-5. The work will soon be completed.

However, Progress of AIIMS project in Bhubaneswar has been found to be not satisfactory compared to the progress made in the proposed AIIMS in other areas.
