New Delhi, July 30

The government on Friday informed the Lok Sabha that the Haryana Government was yet to hand over encumbrance-free land for the construction of AIIMS at Manethi (Rewari) 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 the pending AIIMS.

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

The construction work is 66 pc complete at AIIMS Bilaspur, 22 pc at AIIMS Jammu; 4.5 pc at AIIMS Kashmir and 86.10 pc at 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 states of the country in a phased manner.

The setting up of 22 AIIMS has been sanctioned so far under the scheme. —TNS
