LAHORE: Ghazi Khan Medical College to be established in DG Khan

The Punjab government has decided to establish a medical college in Dera Ghazi Khan with an estimated cost of Rs 72.579 million, official sources said on Thursday.

They said the Ghazi Khan Medical College would be established to facilitate students in the southern part of the province.

The sources said the Provincial Development Working Party (PDWP) took the decision in a meeting chaired by Punjab Planning and Development (P&D) Chairman Sami Saeed.

The meeting was informed that the Punjab Health Department had formulated PC-II for the construction of the college, which proposed to establish the Project Implementation Unit (PIU) and the hiring of consultants for preparing PC-I, including the identification of a proper site, soil testing and architectural drawings.

It was observed in the meeting that PC-II did not show detailed terms of reference (TORs), and the Health Department was directed to prepare TORs for clearance from the P&D Consultancy Wing.

The meeting was told that the proposed consultant’s fee of Rs 42 million was very high and needed to be reduced to Rs 1 million.

The sources, however, said that 125 acres of land had been identified within the premises of the DG Khan Divisional Headquarters Hospital for the construction of the college. app
