Bengal allots land for proposed AIIMS at Kalyani
The West Bengal Cabinet on Tuesday cleared 180 acres of land for the proposed AIIMS-like super- speciality hospital at Kalyani in Nadia district.
Speaking about the Cabinet decision, State’s Finance and Industry Minister Dr Amit Mitra said the entire 180 acres of land lay with the State Government under the Animal Resources Development Department.
“We have cleared the entire land valued at Rs 57 crore for the proposed AIIMS-like super-speciality hospital at Kalyani,” Dr Mitra said. “Since the land is in hand, no problem is now left for this project. Now the issue is with the Centre for implementation of the project,” he said.
The State has also chosen Kalyani as a potential area for the development of a satellite township and several plots of land there have been identified for both residential and commercial purposes. The CM has named the Kalyani theme township Samriddhi. The Government will showcase the proposed six theme township projects during the Chief Minister’s London visit slated July.
