Indian government commits to $8.4 million renovation of IGMH

The Indian government has announced its intention to finance the complete renovation of the Indira Ghandi Memorial Hospital (IGMH) in Male’. The work is expected to cost US$8.4 million.

The agreement to renovate was made during the visit of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to attend the SAARC summit in November last year.

Representing the Indian government, P.S. Karthigeyan told local newspaper Haveeru: “This is a special project for India. India still sees IGMH as the most important symbol of the good relations between India and Maldives. Even though we say we are going to renovate the hospital, our plan is to almost entirely rebuild it.”

IGMH was a gift from the Indian government to the people of Maldives, first opening in 1995.

It has been a busy week for Maldivian-Indian ties in which both the foreign and defence ministers travelled to meet with their counterparts in India.

President Waheed is also said to be planning a visit to India next month, whilst former President Mohamed Nasheed is to visit soon after returning from the United States.

    just to remind the Maldivian govt. …not to try to change the name of IGMH to some other national freedom fighter’s name. The name Indira Gandhi Memorial Hospital to remain as it is.
