Indore: Mahatma Gandhi Memorial Medical College administration has served another notice to about 80 families living in college campus for evicting the quarters and to remove the encroachment by themselves. The orders were released by the college on February 23 and given a deadline to the families till 3 pm on February 26.
The college has served the third eviction notice to the families as the action was stopped earlier after the interference of Congress leaders. MGM Medical College administration has served the notice to families of 27 employees who are employees in associated hospitals of the college and to about 50 employees associated with the divisional commissioner’s office. College administration said PWD has declared the houses as dilapidated and therefore college administration will demolish them.
“College will take action with the help of administration and the encroachers will have to bear the expenses for the same,” the college administration mentioned.
Meanwhile, the families also met the MGM Medical College dean to seek more time to vacate the houses but to no avail. One of those who received the notice, wishing anonymity, said, “College administration has served us a notice to vacate the house all of a sudden in the first week of January initially and now. We have requested the college administration to extend the time as it is not possible to arrange for another accommodation short time.”
He also said that they have spent about Rs 1 lakh in renovation of the house but the PWD has declared it as dilapidated. Another employee of MY Hospital, who received the notice, alleged that the college administration had shifted families living in illegally constructed houses to other places but they are denied the same.
