Even though April 30 was the deadline for the handover of the new building of the Nizam’s Institute of Medical Science, the hospital has still not taken possession of the building from the contractors.
The contractors are contemplating legal action, including the sealing of the new Banjara Hills Trauma Centre. A source at NIMS claims that in the case of the NIMS Banjara Hills project, the central government is the principal sponsor. The NIMS authorities have written to the health secretary, Government of India, regarding issues pertaining to the original agreement. “This is one of the unnecessary time consuming techniques to delay the handover,” it stated.
