Guwahati, January 11, 2018: A 120-year old building which was once the Berry White Medical School – later Assam Medical College – is all set to be revamped with Indian National Trust for Art and Cultural Heritage (INTACH) being entrusted the task of renovating it.
INTACH on Wednesday signed a MoU with Oil India Ltd in Dibrugarh, according to which the public sector oil company would provide Rs 2.01 crore for the renovation work. The building has been lying in a disgraceful condition inside the Assam Medical College in Dibrugarh for over 25 years now.
The building will become a museum-cum-archive, where visitors will be able to understand not just the history of the medical college and medical education in Assam, but also learn about the various contributions that Dr John Berry White a British officer, had made for the overall development of the state,” Laya Madduri, deputy commissioner of Dibrugarh said.
