It has been given by the government to the company on extendable lease of two years.

Deputy Commissioner Rakesh Gupta today visited the dispensaries located in various sectors of HUDA. Six of the dispensaries were found lying abandoned which were got constructed by HUDA.

After completion of the buildings of these dispensaries, doctors and other para medical staff were not appointed even for once and these dispensaries never became functional.

According to HUDA authorities, the cost of construction on each dispensary was Rs 20 lakh. The Deputy Commissioner was surprised to see that new dispensary buildings at sector 55,39, Sun city, Rosewood city, Sushant Lok phase-3 and Palam Vihar were lying unutilized. The dispensaries of sector 40 and 43 were maintained and run by District Red Cross Society where only ANMs attended the patients.
