IGMC Medical College Girls Students Hostel Woes – Complain to CM

The Chief Minister,

Respected sir,

On behalf of all the resident doctors in Blessington girls hostel, near Ice Skating Rink, Shimla, i am writing this article to bring into notice the difficulties we are facing.

There are around 24 rooms on each floor, with 2 student in each room, 4 bathrooms and toilets, i,e around 200 students living in a building meant for 100 only.

The room size is less then 10 by 10 feet.

The electricity drips down every now and then, there is always overloading.

The mess is too small , not even meant to accommodate 50 students.

Due to the overloaded electricity there have been sparkling and not once. twice but thrice, rooms have been caught with fire.

We were last yr told to double up , and wen we didn’t agree to it, the administration told us that the new hostel would be done in 15 to maximum of 30 days, we would get single rooms in the new hostel, i.e. last Year July.

And now its almost been a year, of pleading the hostel warden, incharge , Principal, and once we even went to the Chief Minister, but still we havn’t got the new hostel though the building been complete for more than 6months.

Only the transformer needs to be put up.

Two days back we again asked the warden to shift us without the transformer, alas both principal and the warden didn’t agree to it.

The final year students are having there exams from July 1st week, and it is very difficult to study when two are staying in a room meant for only one.

Thanking you in anticipation.
