Ludhiana, September 21, 2016: The Municipal Commissioner, Ludhiana, Ghanshyam Thori conducted a meeting with the representatives from the private nursing homes on Wednesday.
The meeting was called to give a chance to the hospital authorities for making adequate parking arrangements in their hospital premises. The MC had issued notices to 105 nursing homes of the city.
The hospital authorities have requested the MC Commissioner for giving them some time for the compliance of the court orders. The MC Commissioner has told the hospital authorities that they would put their request in front of the court and only court will decide as to how much time they can be given for the compliance of the orders.
A few of the hospital owners even informed the MC authorities that their hospital buildings were constructed before the framing of the building bylaws therefore they should be given time to make necessary changes. The officials have asked these hospital authorities to bring proofs that their buildings were constructed before imposition of building bye laws and they will be segregated but rest will have to follow the court orders.
But during the course of hearing it came to light that there were other hospitals too where parking arrangements were not sufficient. Therefore, court directed the MC Commissioner to issue the notices to such nursing homes and conduct a meeting with them to explore the provision of parking space by them before any action is taken against them. MC had issued notices of 105 such nursing homes out of which 11 are in zone A, 19 in zone B, 4 in Zone C and 71 in zone D.
The additional municipal commissioner Amrit Kaur Gill informed that they had identified 105 identified nursing homes and notices were served to them. She told that they have been given clear message that they will have to comply with court orders and make parking arrangements to curb traffic congestion in the area.
The MCL Commissioner Ghanshyam Thori informed that they gave a chance to hospital authorities to put their case and now they will inform court about the proceeding of this meeting on October 3 followed by which further course of action will take place.
