After view­ing a de­tailed pre­sen­ta­tion made by the School of Plan­ning and Ar­chi­tec­ture (SPA), New Delhi, re­gard­ing the con­struc­tion of the au­ton­o­mous com­plex of the Shri Mata Vaishno Devi Col­lege of Nurs­ing, Kakryal, and al­lied in­fra­struc­ture, the Board approved the Master Plan as well as the ar­chi­tec­tural and struc­tural de­signs of the Nurs­ing Col­lege. It is per­ti­nent to re­call that the Board had ear­lier de­cided to ap­point the School of Plan­ning and Ar­chi­tec­ture, New Delhi, for pre­par­ing the Master Plan of the Shrine area and of the Nurs­ing Col­lege in the first in­stance.

The au­ton­o­mous com­plex of the Nurs­ing Col­lege shall be con­structed by util­is­ing green tech­nolo­gies and will com­prise the ad­min­is­tra­tive and academic blocks; hos­tels for stu­dents pur­su­ing un­der­grad­u­ate, post­grad­u­ate and Ph. D cour­ses; res­i­den­tial ac­com­mo­da­tion for fac­ulty, staff and the Prin­ci­pal of the Col­lege; open air the­atre; a fa­cil­i­ties block com­pris­ing shops, cafe­te­ria, recre­ational hall for stu­dents; play­fields etc. Other works to be taken up un­der the Master Plan of the Nurs­ing Col­lege in­clude land­scap­ing, land and road de­vel­op­ment, con­struc­tion of green cor­ri­dor, elec­tric sub- sta­tion, wa­ter har­vest­ing, sewage treat­ment plant and pro­vi­sion of so­lar power sys­tem for all the build­ings. This en­tire com­plex, es­ti­mated to cost about Rs. 100 crore, will be con­structed within the next three years in a phased manner.

The Gov­er­nor di­rected that the con­struc­tion of the en­tire Nurs­ing Col­lege Com­plex should be done on fast track ba­sis so that it is com­pleted well within the sched­uled time frame and en­sure against any time and cost over runs. CEO was di­rected to en­sure max­i­mum pos­si­ble util­i­sa­tion of green tech­nolo­gies, be­sides rain wa­ter and so­lar power har­vest­ing, in all the build­ings of the Nurs­ing Col­lege as well as in re­spect of the Sushruta Bhawan-ii and Charak Bhawan-ii. Re­view­ing the fu­ture re­quire­ments of the Su­per­spe­cial­ity Hospi­tal, Kakryal, par­tic­u­larly in terms of aug­ment­ing the di­ag­nos­tic and treat­ment fa­cil­i­ties, the Board approved the pro­cure­ment of PET-CT Scan­ner for the Hospi­tal which will be­come op­er­a­tional by De­cem­ber 2017. This fa­cil­ity, not presently avail­able else­where in the State will, in­ter­alia, im­mensely help in early di­ag­no­sis of can­cer. The Board also approved the tem­po­rary alien­ation of Board's land to the Rail­ways for fa­cil­i­tat­ing dump­ing of the muck to be ex­ca­vated from the Tun­nel Project.
