Daijiworld Media Network - Mangalore (AF)

Mangalore, Jun 14: Nitte Education Trust has planned a series of programmes to mark the birth centenary celebrations of the late Justice K S Hegde, former judge of the Supreme Court and former speaker of Lok Sabha.

A press release stated that as a prelude to the celebrations, the Trust made an investment of Rs 100 crore to upgrade various facilities like infrastructure of the engineering college including laboratory, shifting the nursing colleges to new ultra modern facilities, construction of new hostles for men and for women, upgrading the dental college and construction of a super speciality hospital.

Twinning programmes with overseas institutions, conducting international seminars and commemoration of the centenary by several institutions are all on the anvil during the centenary year.

The year-long celebrations will be launched on Monday June 16 with a function to be inaugurated by L K Advani. This will be followed by another function on December 24 at Nitte during which the K S Hegde awards will be distributed. A concluding function on June 16, 2009 will also be held to round-off the celebrations. 

The K S Hegde Foundation is another institution that has been actively involved in the cause of education and community development. Nitte has witnessed a steady activity in community development under the aegis of the Foundation. A new primary school building of 3,700 sq ft has been put up by the Foundation to replace the existing old government primary school building.

As part of the Nirmala Grama Yojana, an initiative of the state government, the Foundation has provided sanitary facilities to 700 house holds. Digging of public wells in several locales around Nitte has been successfully undertaken. The Mahila Udyog Mandal, another initiative of the Foundation has generated opportunities of self employment to 100 women, the release stated.

The K S Hegde Charitable Hospital caters to well over 2,50,000 persons annually. The 17 satellite hospitals being run by the Trust, many of which are presently day care centers, are being upgraded to serve the needs of over 100,000 persons who seek its facilities. Efforts are also being made to introduce the facility of in-patient admissions at Nitte, Mundkur and Bailur, stated the release.
