2 tube wells drilled in 4 yrs at AIIMS site in Jammu!

Early Times Report
Jammu, July 11: Much awaited All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Jammu continues to remain in limbo, with latest reports suggesting that the work is going on at a snail's pace.
As per the official documents, land measuring 1954 kanals and 06 marlas was identified in Jammu's Vijaypur area. The documents reveal that fencing in the north portion has been completed and in the south portion, 50 percent of the fencing has been done. Further, interestingly, out of the 06 tube wells, two have been drilled by the department. There is no news when shall the remaining ones be drilled.
An official privy to this development told Early Times that completion of AIIMS seems a distant dream as the work on its construction is not going on the way it should.
In 2015, soon after stitching the common ground for alliance, the BJP and PDP formed the coalition government in March that year. After the government formation, the Prime Minister Narendra Modi promised the establishment of two AIIMS-like institutions for healthcare in the capital cities of the state.
The state dispensation was asked to identify the land for the establishment of AIIMS in the twin capitals of the state. After much delay, the government finally identified the two sites. The government then claimed that the sites at Vijaypur in Samba district in Jammu region and at Awantipora in Pulwama in Kashmir have been finalized for the establishment of AIIMS.
However, till date, the government is yet to even initiate the process of construction of the AIIMS in Jammu and Srinagar. The Central Public Works Department was appointed as the agency for the construction work of these new AIIMS but no construction has started at any of the two sites.
Furthermore, what could be more ironical than this that four years after the announcement of AIIMS in Jammu was made by the state government, it is now that the proposal has been sent to the government of India for the approval of funds.
Insiders reveal that the proposal was submitted by the Draft Expenditure Finance Committee of Rs 1630 crore for establishment of AIIMS in Jammu division and sent to the department of expenditure, Government of India. Sources said that the nod has not yet been given for the proposal.
"It is beyond one's understanding that such a premier health institute's construction has been left unattended and those at the helm besides those who claim to represent Jammu's cause have been silent on the issue," sources said and added that if the pace of the work goes on in the same way as it is going on at present then the completion may took more than a decade.
"The place has not even been fenced, leave alone any construction being witnessed over it. There is absolutely nothing to show as AIIMS," an official said while wishing not to be named.
