Haryana is all set to get its fourth government medical college, since 2005, as Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda laid the foundation stone of the Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College in Karnal on Sunday. Being built in the memory of Kalpana Chawla, an Indian–American astronaut who was a mission specialist on space shuttle Columbia, the institute is set to come up in 25 months.
The Rs 650-crore super specialty Kalpana Chawla Government Medical College will have a 500-bedded hospital, OPD, maternity hospital, emergency ward, hospital block, nursing college, auditorium, animal house and other advanced facilities. The state government has provided Rs 105.5 crore in the current financial year for the medical college. The medical college being constructed over 43 acre, will have 100 MBBS seats. The construction will be carried out by Hospital Services Consultancy Corporation India Limited.
While speaking on the occasion, Hooda said, "Between 1966 and 2005, not a single medical college or thermal power plant was set up in Haryana. The state government is also trying hard to get a domestic airport in Karnal".
