Indore (Madhya Pradesh): The work of renovation of the Cancer Hospital’s basement to stop the water logging and leakage is in its last leg. According to the officials, 90 per cent of the work has been done and they will hand over the basement to the hospital. “We are rejuvenating the well to make it an active water source and have constructed a wall to stop the leakage in the basement.

Waterproofing and concrete filling of the basement has already been done while waterproofing of the walls is undergoing,” officials said. They added that an underground water tank has also been constructed and an alarm system will be installed to help officials to empty the water from the basement if the tank gets filled.

A joint team of IDA, IMC, SGSITS, and PIU-PWD had conducted a drive to find out the exact reasons for the two-decade-old leakage issue in the basement of the hospital.  The work of renovation including strengthening the basement, preparing the boundary wall, and other works are undergoing. 

Meanwhile, superintendent of Cancer Hospital Dr Ramesh Arya said that the work on the basement is almost complete. “It was a major concern for us and we believe that we will get rid of the problem now.” The basement of the hospital had turned into a breeding ground for mosquitoes raising the risk of vector-borne diseases among the visitors and patients. The PWD had spent over Rs 40 lakh in the last few years but the hospital couldn’t get rid of the problem.
