The federal government has decided to audit the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) after the repeal of the Medical Teaching Institution (MTI) Act.
According to sources, the Ministry of Health has issued an order to form a team to audit the funds under MTI.
According to PIMs sources, the MTI Act was implemented on the hospital last year, under which funds of Rs 14 billion were given to the hospital.
According to sources, the MTI management has spent government funds on renovation of offices and huge salaries.
According to Pims sources, Dean MTI had allocated his salary of 7.5 lakh rupees.
According to the sources, the salary of medical director, hospital director, nursing director and director of finance was allocated Rs. 5.5 lakh.
According to Pims sources, a salary of 3.5 lakhs was allocated for Director HR, Director IT and Manager Legal.
According to sources, the MTI authorities allocated Rs 11.48 million for 14 senior positions in terms of salaries.
According to PIMs sources, MTI officials spent hospital funds on buying expensive furniture, LEDs, AC etc. for the offices.
The MIT Act, which was enacted last year at Pimms Hospital, was struck down by the Senate.
