Roman Catholic Church gets land for projects after 5 years
Aug. 19, 2013
The 5-year long struggle by the Roman Catholic Church of Ranchi for locating lands for a composite university project including a medical college and a 500-bed super speciality hospital in Ranchi district has been succeeded without depending upon the state government to acquire lands.
According to Cardinal Telesphore P Toppo, the Roman Catholic Church of Ranchi had been searching lands for their projects since 2008 without depending upon the state government to acquire lands. Despite some divisive elements tried to foil their endeavor, the Church has recently succeeded in its goal and received several offers for lands in and around Ranchi. A team from the Church visited the sites of the lands and started verification title deeds from the state's land and land revenue department offices. Cardinal Toppo said that as per guidelines of the Medical Council of India (MCI), at least 25 acres of land is required to set up a medical college. But the Church required around 300 acres of land for its composite project like medical college and hospital, nurses training centre, a law university, schools, colleges and residential quarters.
The Church would buy the required lands from its own funds. But the Church needs the help from the state government in issuing "no objection certificate" which to be filed to MCI. The Cardinal said that after getting possession of the lands for the project, Church would approach major corporate houses in the country for contribution.
