Established in 1956, All India Institute of Medical Sciences Delhi – AIIMS – is a medical college and a medical research public university based in New Delhi, India. The Institute operates autonomously under the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
The AIIMS is a nationalized exam conducted by the All India Institute of Medical Sciences. The eligibility criterion contains candidate’s required age, academic conditions, minimum passing percentage, category, core subjects, etc.
It is claimed that the All India Institute of Medical Sciences will start with 50 seats from the next academic session in Nagpur. The central government’s team has recommended the starting of AIIMS on a temporary basis from the Government Medical College and Hospital (GMCH). The six-member committee that had inspected GMCH on September 2 and 3 recently submitted a report with the ministry of health and family welfare, claimed the sources from Chief Minister Devendra Fadnavis’ office. “The GMCH has all facilities suitable for AIIMS. The ministry will decide how college and hospital premises will be shared,” sources said.
Seats in AIIMS Nagpur will be shown as available for the February 2017 entrance examination,” said the sources. The central government has approved the college with 960 beds on October 7, 2015. The state government had allotted 150 acres for AIIMS Nagpur Campus at MIHAN in March. AIIMS is estimated to cost around Rs1,600 crore.
In July, Gadkari and Fadnavis suggested that the AIIMS hospital be started from the Employees State Insurance Corporation (ESIC) hospital in Ganeshpeth. For educational and accommodation purposes, three colleges — Raisoni College at Hingna, Panpaliya Homeopathy Hospital at Nandanvan and Pharmacy College — were recommended. Union minister Nitin Gadkari and Fadnavis are expected to meet in the first week of December to formalize matters
“A 125-bed hospital and 50 seats is the minimum requirement to start, on a temporary basis. The ESIC is a 200-bed hospital but does not have an attached college. Panpalia College in combination with ESIC was the best option but an expenditure of Rs3 to 5 crore was needed. The committee felt it would not be proper to spend so much on a private college,” the sources said.
Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY) director Sudeep Shrivastav, director of Raipur AIIMS Dr Nitin Nagarkar, medical superintendent of AIIMS (New Delhi) Dr. DK Sharma, consultant engineer VK Sharma, architect Rajeev Kanojia and a superintending engineer from the post graduate institute of medical education and research (PGI), Chandigarh were the members who inspected GMCH.
