A committee of the Health Department of the UT Administration is preparing a detailed project report pertaining to the Homeopathy Medical College and Hospital, Sector 26.
The report has to contain all the information about if the administration takes over the college, how much expenditure will be incurred and whether a grant in aid is to provide whatever will be the expenses.
The report must also contain the complete information regarding the infrastructure of the institute.
Though a meeting with the UT Advisor was held in December 2011, wherein the Ayush department was asked to prepare the report, the report is yet to be completed. Now, when the Panjab University Syndicate took the decision of disaffiliating the college, the students have been demanding that either the UT Administration take over the college, or Panjab University take it under its control.
According to official information, after the 2011 meeting, a committee was constituted in May 2012 which visited the college in July 2012 to prepare the report. One of the senior officials of the health department told Newsline that the detailed project report has nothing to do with the affiliation of the college.
The varsity decided to disaffiliate the college because it was not able to have a 100 per cent regular faculty, along with other issues. "We are preparing the report wherein we have to mention whether the college is viable in terms of facilities and infrastructure. After this we will submit the report with the authorities then they will decide accordingly.", he added.
Besides these, around 40 students of the college on Friday met Dr Rajeshwar Singh Rana, the assistant director, Homeopathy, cum office-in-charge, Ayush, UT Administration, demanding that he look into the matter of taking over the college.
However, the college principal K K Dhiman, said that a committee was visiting the college in July 2012, and now, a few days back the college got a call that a committee needs more detail with regard to the detailed project report. "We are ready to submit the details," Dhiman said.
