Hospital hearing - New date

The Joint Charity Commissioner on February 20 has set February 27 for hearing preliminary issue of jurisdiction in The B D Petit Parsee General Hospital (PGH) vs Meher and Khushru Zaiwalla matter. The Zaiwallas have challenged the PGH-Medanta-Jal Shroff proposal to build a cosmopolitan hospital in the PGH precincts from whose revenues funds would be generated to subsidize PGH.

The Shroffs and Medanta have given PGH till March 31 to sort out the differences with those who oppose the project. The Shroffs of Hong Kong have pledged a donation of around Rs 160 crores for the project to be managed by the Gurgaon based Medanta Group.
