The district administration is taking all steps to lay the foundation stone for the Idukki Medical College at Cheruthoni by September this year
A meeting to prepare the draft master plan for the medical college was held at the collectorate in Painavu on Tuesday. District Collector T. Bhaskaran who chaired the meeting, said KITCO has been assigned with the task of drawing up the building plans.
The project would soon have a special officer, he said. The building will be constructed without affecting the environment as the area is near to the Idukki dam. The-arch shaped building will environmentally and aesthetically fit for the area.
Officials of the KSEB and other departments were also represented at the meeting. All modern medical equipment will be available at the Medical College. Land for the medical college has been provided by the district panchayat and it is near to the district hospital.
P. T. Thomas, MP, Roshy Augustine, MLA, and district panchayat president M.T.Thomas also attended the meeting.
