It is three years since the restoration works of the Nizamia General Hospital started but the project is moving at snail’s pace. In the initial period if it was the delay in the release of funds by the Andhra Pradesh Health and Medical Housing and Infrastructure Development Corporation (APHMIDC), the agency responsible for the restoration and monitoring of the 1938 constructed hospital, now, after bifurcation of the state, the release of funds us yet again the reason for the delay.

The outer works of the hospital is almost complete but the work inside the hospital is yet to be completed. The total cost of the project is Rs 4.2 crore of which Rs 3 crore was released. There is another Rs 1.2 crore that is yet to be released. In the last few months, work almost came to a standstill for want of funds.

The contractor has been complaining that post bifurcation of the state, there has been a delay. The project cost may be escalated if there is more delay. Work on the outer walls such as plastering has been done but the plaster work in some areas remains and the inner areas in the hospital would need a lot of time. The hospital with its Indo-Saracenic architectural style complements the iconic Charminar which is opposite the hospital.
