Early Times Report

Jammu, Nov 8: The central government has censured the Jammu and Kashmir administration for failing to show any progress on making the much hyped AIIMS project as success in JK's twin capitals of Srinagar and Jammu.
As per the sources who are privy to these details, the central government has sought answers from concerned quarters in Jammu and Kashmir over why they have failed to make any progress in the construction of AIIMS and why the funds sanctioned by the union government haven't been utilized to the fullest.
The JK administration, said sources, is preparing a detailed reply in which the status of the project will be highlighted and the hurdles that occurred in its implementation will also be thoroughly presented before the GOI.
Meanwhile, the official data reveals that out of the total Rs Two Thousand Crores, the government sanctioned Rs Nine Thousand crores at the first place for the construction of AIIMS in Jammu. However, out of these sanctioned nine thousand crore rupees, not even a single rupee has so far been spent. Sources privy to this development divulged that the funds would get lapsed soon with the commencement of the next financial year in the state. "There are so far Rs 43 crores spent on the construction of AIIMS in Kashmir Valley but for Jammu, the government hasn't spent anything," says an official privy to the development.
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. "What we are seeing till date is that there is only what we call the pre-investment work going on at the two sites. Such a process has been in progress since the past two years but nothing so far has been achieved," officials privy to the development divulged.
It was informed further that 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.
Government sources say that the latest development over the construction of AIIMS in Jammu and Srinagar was seen in April 2018 and that since then, there has been no forward movement over the project. Reports inform that it was in the month of April, 2018 that the state government transferred the land for AIIMS site to the department of Health and Medical Education and that since then the project continues to remain in limbo.
