Gangtok: Sikkim chief minister Prem Singh Golay on Tuesday said that the Maharashtra government has approved the state’s proposal to construct a Sikkim House in Navi Mumbai.
The complex will come up near Tata Memorial Hospital, which is one of the top hospitals in the country, said Golay.
In his Budget speech at the Sikkim Legislative Assembly on Tuesday, Golay said: “A plot of land measuring 4,000 sq m, which is almost an acre, has been allotted. For this, Rs 11.97 crore has already been paid and the land has been taken into possession.”
This will ease the financial burden on our people travelling to Mumbai for treatment and also assist them in other matters, Golay added.
