Hyderabad: The Telangana High Court asked State Government to take a final decision on the construction of the new building to house Osmania General Hospital (OGH).

According to a report in Times of India, a bench consisting of Chief Justice of Telangana High Court Hima Kohli and Justice B Vijaysen Reddy questioned the State government for not taking decision on whether to construct a new building for OGH without disturbing heritage structure or to demolish the existing building before constructing a new one. The bench was hearing a 2015 petition that challenged that State Government’s decision to remove OGH from list of protected monuments.

The bench also sought reply from the State Government on whether it is possible to construct new building within OGH complex without disturbing heritage structure.

Advocate General took four weeks’ time to inform State Government’s decision on OGH.
