New Delhi: To mark completion of his third year in office, President Pranab Mukherjee will on Friday inaugurate a clinic in the President`s Estate that was known as the Viceroy`s Dispensary when originally constructed in 1929.

The President`s Estate Clinic and CGHS Wellness Centre are functioning in the building, whose various architectural features like cornices, moulding and turrets etc. had been badly damaged/defaced as no major repair/restoration work was taken up since last many years.

The building has now been renovated and restored to its original shape. Renovation work started on June 4 and was completed on July 23 i.e. within 50 days, said a Rashtrapati Bhavan statement.
