Four delayed CMCH schemes may be completed in 2015

LARKANA: Four major healthcare ADP development schemes of Chandka Medical College Hospital are expected to be completed by June 2015 which have already been delayed for two years owing to non-release of approved funds during the previous fiscal years.

Total revenue component amounting to Rs 564.988 of these essential projects is required to be released forthwith so as to enable the hospital administration to start these departments on completion. These schemes include Faryal Talpur Cardiac Surgery Complex costing Rs 290.517 million (Capital 51.123 and Revenue 239.394 million), ADP scheme No 1/620, construction of Neuro Science Complex, ADP scheme 2/621 costing Rs 214.635 million (Capital Rs 44.425 and Revenue 170.210 million), up-gradation of Surgery Department, Surgery, Equipment for Operation Theatre Modernization of Laboratory, Blood Bank & Establishment of Oncology Treatment Ward (30-beds), ADP scheme 3/622, costing Rs 143.235 million (Capital Rs 33.540 & Revenue Rs 109.695 million) and Establishment of Shaheed Benazir Bhutto Skin Disease Complex & Construction of Dental & Hepatology Department, ADP scheme 4/623, costing Rs 134.916 million out of which capital cost is Rs 89.227 and Revenue cost is Rs 45.689 million.

Total capital cost was released for these projects with two years delay for unknown reasons but the saving of Rs 73.012 million has been achieved which is astonishing and expresses the proper utilization of the tax payer’s money.

Total revenue funds amounting to Rs 564.988 are now urgently required for these schemes before the expected completion of these projects in June 2015 so that required machinery, equipment, instruments and furniture could be procured well on time to run these vital projects on completion.

Hospital sources told PPI that if the government releases this amount tenders will be floated and it will take time to get the consignment of the required material and on arrival of the goods these schemes will be made functional for the benefit of the poor needy patients of the CMCH catchment area.
