GMC clarifies

This is with reference to the news report ‘Govt. curtails GMC funding’ published in Daily Greater Kashmir dated October 24, 2012. The title as well as the news report is far from truth as there has been no curtailment of funds so far as GMC, Srinagar and its associated hospitals are concerned. In fact the allocated budget has shown a consistent increasing trend over the years with the approved outlay of funds for the year 2010-11 being Rs 17.69 crores which has been enhanced every year with Rs. 27.50 crores being the approved outlay for the current financial year (2012-13).
It is indeed true that the Govt. Medical College, Srinagar has accrued a substantial amount as liability which at times necessitated expenditure beyond the budgetary limits in the interest of patient care. However the matter is already under sympathetic consideration of the government and in this regard a committee headed by Director SKIMS has already been framed which will investigate the whole matter.
Moreover the reporter has misquoted the undersigned with regards to the purchasing process. I want to clarify that as Head of the Institution I am involved in all aspects of the functioning of GMC, Srinagar and its associated hospitals and so I cannot, and have not, issued the statement attributed to me.

Prof. Rafiq A. Pampori
Govt. Medical College, Srinagar
