The 18th meeting of the Shri Mata Mansa Devi Shrine Board (SMMDSB), Panchkula, held under the chairmanship of Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal at Panchkula on Thursday approved new projects worth Rs 45 crore. One of the approved projects is the establishment of a diagnostic center with an OPD facility in the shrine premises. The centre would provide treatment facilities to the people on subsidised rates. Besides this, the CM also directed to explore the possibility of transferring an additional 10 acres of adjoining and unutilised land of Haryana Shehri Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP) to SMMDSB for providing amenities to the devotees in a planned manner.
A total of 25 agenda items were taken up in the meeting. Speaker of Vidhan Sabha Gian Chand Gupta and Chief Secretary Keshni Arora were also present in the meeting.
The CM directed the concerned officers to start the process for the construction of the building of diagnostic centre at the earliest. He said that besides the retired doctors, services of medical practitioners associated with different NGOs should also be taken for providing medical facilities to those visiting the diagnostic centre. The centre, which would be built, managed, and run by the SMMDSB, would be equipped with all the modern facilities. The treatment and test facilities would be provided on the subsidised rates.
While reviewing the progress of work for the setting up of Sanskrit College in the shrine complex, the CM directed the Higher Education Department to take possession of land at the earliest and initiate the process for the construction of the building. The Sanskrit College would be named Shri Mata Mansa Devi Sanskrit Mahavidhylaya.
