HYDERABAD: The Nizam Charitable Trust has approached the High Court seeking appointment of an arbitrator to settle the dispute between the trust and the state government. When the petition came up for hearing before chief justice Madan B. Lokur on Friday, its trustee said there had been large-scale violations in management of the NIMS which include leasing out of lands to various bodies to the AP Centre for Emergency Medicare (APCEM) and others.

He said the land housing Nizam’s Institute of Medical Sciences was leased to the state government for 99 years on certain terms and conditions. However, there have been large-scale violations and failure to give proper priority to the poor in providing medical care.

The petitioner also maintained that despite repeated attempts, the government did not agree to appointment of an arbitrator. On the other hand, the government contended that there was no need for an arbitrator as there was no dispute between them. The chief justice adjourned the case by four weeks.
