Help sought for Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust's cash counter-less hospital project in Kerala
The Trust expects to take up the Rs 180-crore project for establishing the Sathya Sai Free Hospital for Women and Children forward as a joint venture with the Centre and the State, the director said.
THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: The representatives of Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust, Kerala, on Sunday met BJP national president Amit Shah seeking his help for the implementation of the cash counter-less Sathya Sai hospital project in Kanhangad. “He has agreed to take up the matter with Prime Minister Narendra Modi and get back to us,” Trust founder director K N Anandakumar said.
The Trust expects to take up the Rs 180-crore project for establishing the Sathya Sai Free Hospital for Women and Children forward as a joint venture of the Central Government, State government and the Sathya Sai Orphanage Trust, he said.
The Kerala government has promised 10 acres for the project. Bhoomi Pooja was held on October 10, 2015.
At the function, Union Minister D V Sadananda Gowda had promised Rs 50 crore as grant from the Centre, but the project has not progressed.
The hospital will be the third cash counter-less one in the world, according to Anandakumar. The other two are in Puttaparti and Whitefield, Bangalore. The hospital will have an area of 3.5 lakh sq ft. The project has been awarded to Tata Consultancy Engineers, he said.
