Plan to set up ESI hospital, medical college in Gulbarga still on hold

with 0 Comment

The establishment of the super speciality ESI Hospital and a Central Medical College attached to it in Gulbarga City is likely to be further delayed due to the stand off between the Union and State government over the mode of allotment of the 30-acre land required for establishing the hospital and medical college.

The Union Labour and Employment Minister, Mr M. Mallikarjun Kharge, has flatly rejected the proposal of the State government to allot the land in the main campus of the Gulbarga University on lease at a cost of Rs 4.42 crores non-refundable deposit and Rs 10,000 as rent for each acre of the land allotted to the proposed hospital and medical college on lease.

Mr Kharge reiterated the demand for allotment of free land by the State government for the proposed projects since this would not only provide treatment facility to the people in a super speciality hospital, but would also help in establishment of a central medical college that would enable students of the State to get 40 per cent of seats in the admission every year.

Talking to The Hindu here, Mr Kharge cited the gesture of other States — including the Bihar Government, Himachal Pradesh government, and Kerala government — allotting land, free of cost, for the construction of the super speciality hospital and medical college in their States. “Karnataka government should follow the examples of these States and allot free land for the proposed super speciality hospital and medical college in the overall interest of the State and more particularly in the interest of developing the backward Gulbarga region,” he said.

Project benefits
Mr Kharge pointed out that the Union Government would be investing more than Rs 600 crore for the proposed super speciality hospital and medical college in Gulbarga and the State should not lose this opportunity.

The establishment of the hospital and college would result in the opening up of employment avenues to the people of the region. While 40 per cent of the seats in the medical college would be allotted to the State, the remaining 40 per cent of the seats would be allotted to the children of the Central government employees and 20 per cent of the seats to the members of the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC).

He said that the cost fixed for the land proposed to be given for the hospital and medical college was “unreasonable and the State Government should have come forward on its own to offer it free of cost without asking”. “We had demanded 30 acre (of) land in one piece near Gulbarga City and the State Government has identified two piece(s) of land in the main campus of the Gulbarga University and fixed an exorbitant price for it,” he said.

Work underway
Incidentally, the establishment of the medical college and super speciality hospital in Gulbarga City was the first decision announced by Mr Kharge after taking over charge as the Union Labour Minister. Mr Kharge said the foundation stone for the proposed hospital and medical college in Patna in Bihar was laid by the Lok Sabha speaker, Ms Meera Kumar, in which the Bihar Chief Minister, Mr Nitesh Kumar, and the Deputy Chief Minister, Mr Sushil Modi, participated and the work has already begun.

Similarly, the work of construction of the hospital and medical college in Himachal Pradesh and Kerala is likely to begin shortly. “My only concern is that the Karnataka should not miss the bus by placing unreasonable demands for handing over the lands,” he said.

with 0 Comment

After serving as railway employees for about a year, over 1000 gangmen will become porters again.

Railways will return porter licences to 1,231 gangmen cross the country, a senior Railway Ministry official said, adding "zonal railways have been instructed to do the needful."

The railway budget 2008-09 had provided an opportunity to porters to be appointed as gangmen as a one-time measure following which 21,308 porters were appointed as gangmen.

A railway gangman earns about Rs 10,000 a month.

However, after becoming gangmen, some of them wanted to revert back to their previous jobs and made representation to Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee who agreed.

The Defence Minister Shri AK Antony has urged the private sector to enter the defence industry. Stressing on the need for indigenisation, particularly in the defence sector, Shri Antony said it was imperative for a country like India’s size and economy to have a vibrant defence industry.

“Given the fact that India is emerging as a major economic player, this is certainly not a desirable state of affairs,” Shri Antony said in an address to seminar on ‘Command, Control, Computers, Communication, Intelligence and Information (C4I2) structures here today. “Though our country has a massive industrial infrastructure, we are still a long way from establishing ourselves as a major defence equipment manufacturing nation. Much of the content of our defence requirement continues to be imported,” he added.

The government has undertaken several policy decisions to correct this imbalance and seeks to promote private-public partnerships, Shri Antony said. The government has allowed 26 percent FDI in the defence sector and the offset policy is aimed at encouraging technology inflows and enhance the capability of our defence industrial base, he added.

The Defence Minister said the private sector’s IT prowess could be harnessed for the requirements of the armed forces. “Our country’s demonstrated abilities in the field of information technologies should be leveraged towards this objective,” Shri Antony said. “The ability to process information and respond rapidly to changes in conflict situations can make all the difference between success or failure,” he added.
