Rs 60 crore has been released by the Goa government for the super speciality block being constructed at the Goa Medical College Hospital (GMCH) in Bambolim.
Being built under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY), the 500-bed super speciality facility will be inaugurated by the end of this year.
An order issued by State Undersecretary Tru Manerkar said, “The administrative approval and expenditure sanction of the government is conveyed to the Dean of GMC for the release of Rs 60 crore in 12 instalments of Rs 5 crore each, towards setting up of the super speciality block in GMC under phase II of the PMSSY scheme.”
The Central government’s Hospital Services Consultancy Corporation Ltd is executing the project. It may be recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi had laid the foundation stone for the Rs 350 crore project in February last year.
