Eviction Drive Around SCB Resumes In Cuttack
Cuttack: The Cuttack Municipal Corporation (CMC) and district administration resumed the eviction drive around SCB Medical College and Hospital here after a week on Monday.
CMC officials said 95 temporary houses at four slums — Chunabhati, Rahihat, Mangala Basti and Taladanda Canal Basti — will be demolished during the fifth phase of the eviction drive.
The evicted families will be rehabilitated at Nimapur near Jagatpur on the outskirts of Cuttack, they added.
Earlier, Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik had announced that SCB will be upgraded to a state-of-the-art hospital with 3000 beds.
Following the announcement, the state government had decided to take up the expansion work from the first week of March. Accordingly, it instructed the CMC and Cuttack district administration to complete the eviction drive in and around the hospital at the earliest possible.
