Delivery of healthcare services has been affected for lack of a quality building at Bhakunde in Baglung Municipality-10. Construction of the health post building that was initiated seven years ago is still incomplete.

Rachhina Construction Company had won the tender competition for the construction of the building in 2015 with a target to complete the construction jobs in 18 months. However, the company has failed to accomplish the construction works despite repeated extension of the deadline. Currently, the company has completed some 90 percent of the construction works.

For lack of quality building, health care services in the health post are being carried out from an old building, which is in dilapidated condition.

Engineer of Intensive Urban and Building Construction Project Yogendra Bastakoti said that a notice was issued some days ago to terminate the contract with the developer company but the latter has sent a request letter informing them to complete the construction by mid-February. “No decision is made whether to terminate the contract or assign to carry out the construction work,” Bastakoti added.

The estimated cost of the building construction is around Rs 17 million.
