    The institute disseminate over 2.5 acres is now under the protecting someone or something of Osmania University (OU), who acquired it from the then Deccan Airlines (Airports Authority of India) in 1955 and the Osmania University’s Zoology department took over the edifice.

    This heritage edifice was constructed in 1895 and was then called Begumpet Military Hospital. The institute could have got a greater in scope or effect visitor on holiday entertainment offered to the public but the long-drawn engagement with the Airports Authority of India and Osmania University for ownership of come down on the ground has belonging to the political or intellectual left the centre virtually isolated.

    According to historians, Sir Ronald Ross performed pioneering systematic investigation to establish facts on malaria in the heritage edifice where he discovered the causal agent and curative for malaria in 1897, which won him the Nobel Prize in 1902. But now, the edifice lies deserted and neglected by the State government and not the same concerned authorities.

    In 1955, Osmania University acquired the edifice and set up or accepted a malarial systematic investigation to establish facts institute, but it was taken over by the Airports Authority of India. In 1975, OU again took discipline in personal activities of the edifice and a lab was functioned till 1997. Thanks to the tussle between the and the Airports Authority of India, all earlier than the present time efforts to acquire funds had proved futile.

    Ch Veera Chary, chief executive of a republic of Welltech Foundation said, “Several attempts made in the past to revive the institute have failed, leaving no land to develop the institute. The heritage institution must be protected by the government as it is one of the key structures for the heritage city which the State government claims,” he added.

    Veera Chary, said “I filed a public interest petition (PIL) in the Hyderabad High Court in August 2018 and urged the State government to hand over the institute to the Welltech Foundation for maintenance.” The Welltech Foundation is involved in finding solutions to the health, relating to economics and living together or enjoying life in communities problems caused by malaria.

    He says, “Every citizen has the right to have a glimpse of the work done by Sir Ronald Ross who discovered the cause and remedy for malaria in 1897.” This institute can attend to as a informant of sudden intuition for many youthful minds, as in those days Ross could achieve this epoch-making find with a unshared microscope.
