AIIMS to be set up at Kalyani in West Bengal before September 2020
An AIIMS would be set up at Kalyani in West Bengal before September 2020, Health Minister JP Nadda said today, asserting that there would be no compromise on the quality of such institutions.
"All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), set up under an Act of Parliament, is an autonomous institute. All AIIMS (at regional level) will have the same standards. We are not diluting standards. These will be of high quality," Nadda said in Rajya Sabha during Question Hour.
He said currently there were 21 AIIMS in various parts of the country.
He said the Cabinet had approved the project at a cost of Rs 1,754 crore on October 2015 and it had to be completed in five years.
