Early Times Report
Jammu, Sept 19: Despite allocation of Rs 1.32 crores by Department of Health for the construction of Primary Health Centre-cum- doctors' residential quarters in hilly area of Mahanpur, the executing agency seems indifferent to complete the building after lapse of nine years.
Sources in Health Department said that since the announcement of the building, the health department had allotted the construction work to Roads and Building Department. "But ironically after lapse of many years, the agency has succeeded so far to complete the ground floor-where PHC would be made functional whereas the residential quarters of doctors which were proposed to be constructed of first floor of PHC, are still not completed", sources said.
"The efficiency of the department concerned could be gauged from this fact that rather than completing the building in specified time , the department hired a private accommodation to run the PHC in Mahanpur and latter, the PHC shifted to newly constructed building of Trauma Centre, Mahanpur", said sources wishing anonymity.
Sources further said that owing to non availability of sufficient manpower in both PHC and Trauma Centre, these centres have become a referral station to District Hospital, Kathua and Government Medical College & Hospital, Jammu.
Public Works Department (R&B), Assistant Executive Engineer, S K Gupta said that except flooring and furnishing work of residential quarters of doctors, the PHC building has almost been completed.
