The dream of a Medical College at Bokaro is will soon to be realised. Ministry of Steel granted 25 acres of land near BIADA Colony at Sector 12 in Bokaro Steel City for establishing a medical college, informed BSL PR officials. 

On the directive of State government, the district administration has identified this land for establishing a Medical College.

Then Bokaro DC Rai Mahimapat Ray had written a letter to Bokaro Steel Plant (BSL) management in this concern on November 2016 and had asked for earliest transfer formalities for the aforesaid land.

Permission for transferring land to establishing an ‘Engineering College’ and for an ‘International Stadium’ is in pipeline, hope permission would be granted soon, said the official.

The land has been approved by the ministry for establishing a medical college while the proposal for land for the engineering college and a stadium is under process, said PK Singh CEO BSL.

With an estimated investment of Rs  600 crore State government will open a medical college under Public Private Partnership (PPP) mode.

Foundation stone of the medical college would be laid by the end of the December this year, an official informed.  

This would be a 100 seats medical college; proposed to be opened under PPP mode with Manipal Group of Medical College, aims to developed to cater the intrinsic healthcare needs of the entire region including parts of its neighbouring states, he said.

“It is indeed a welcome step for everyone as Bokaro Steel City definitely deserves to have a medical college its own,” said local MLA Biranchi Narayan.

The Bokaro Steel Plant, which runs a 910-bed Bokaro General Hospital (BGH), was keen on opening a medical college since 2004-05; got MCI nod in the year 2012 for establishing and upgrading BGH as a medical college after the needful verification. 

Later the management initiated the process to enter into talks with several medical institutions like Chennai based Sri Ram Chandra Medical College, DY Patil Medical College Mumbai, Manipal Medical College including others for setting up the college.

But talk delayed over stake tussle and project was hindered.

But after Raghubar Das was sworn in the chief minister in December 2014,

He launched a fresh initiative to set up a medical college in Bokaro and managed to convince Union steel minister (then) to look into it; now ministry has granted the land.
