Dr Sayana also directed that the Air Conditioner, coolers and fans of the hospital should function properly. He expressed annoyance at the fact that most of the intercoms of the hospital are not functioning and directed their immediate repair. In the emergency ward he directed that rather than sending the patients to the OPDs, the specialists from the OPDs should be called to visit the patient in emergency.While visiting the new OPD building, he expressed his displeasure on the pending works and took the officers of Uttar Pradesh Rajykeeya Nirman Nigam Limited (UPRNNL) to task for delay. He is learnt to have threatened the work executing agency that the college would register a FIR against them for the delay. The Principal also took stock of the availability of the medicines in the hospital.

The deputy medical superintendent of the hospital, Dr N S Khatri and head of departments (HoD) of different clinical and non clinical branches were present on the occasion.  He was told by the deputy MS that the dialysis machine which was dysfunctional from some days has been repaired.

 Later the Principal also took a meeting of with the doctors and the members of the hospital administration and asked them to get ready for the inspection of the  MCI team which is expected to visit the any time.

It is worth mentioning here that the MCI, the apex body of medical education had granted the LoP to the GDMC on June 08, 2016 based on which admission to 150 students was given in the, first year MBBS course. Later the renewal of LoP was done for the college after which students in the II and III batches were granted admissions in the year 2017 and 2018. The new LoP would clear the way for the college to take admissions in its fourth batch of MBBS course from the merit of NEET in July- August this year.
