The government on Friday informed Lok Sabha that the Haryana government was yet to hand over encumbrance free land for the construction of AIIMS at Manethi, as approved by the Union Cabinet on February 28, 2019.

"Encumbrance free land is yet to be handed over by the state government," the Health Ministry said in Parliament about the status of pending AIIMS across the country.

In respect of other AIIMS in the region, the government said, MBBS classes have already commenced at AIIMS Bilaspur (from academic year 2020-21), Jammu (from 2020-21 from a temporary campus) and Bathinda (from 2019-2020).

Sixty-six per cent construction work is complete at AIIMS Bilaspur in Himachal Pradesh, 22 per cent in AIIMS Jammu, 4.5 per cent in AIIMS Kashmir and 86.10 per cent in AIIMS Bathinda where oPD services became functional from December 25, 2019, the government said.

The AIIMS are being built under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY), which aims to establish the institutes in all the states in a phased

manner.

Setting up of 22 AIIMS has been sanctioned so far under the Scheme. Six of the sanctioned AIIMS at Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur, Patna, Raipur and Rishikesh are fully functional.  The remaining 16 are at different stages of operationalisation.

The envisioned facilities at each new AIIMS include a 960- or 750-bedded hospital (610 beds in case of AIIMS, Raebareli), facilities for teaching in undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) medical education and nursing, 18 specialty and 17 super specialty departments.
