AIIMS for Gujarat & Jharkhand, Kerala omitted


New Delhi: All dreams and hopes of Kerala for setting up AIIMS (All Indian Institute of Medical Science) were shattered when Finance Minister Arun Jaitley in his Union Budget 2017 announced of setting up premium hospitals in Jharkhand and Gujarat.
In 2015 the centre had announced to establish AIIMS in Kerala. Following this, the state government identified land in Thiruvananthapuram, Ernakulam, Kottayam and Kozhikode districts and it was send to the centre. The centre later on did no announcements in regard to this.
The Union Health Minister JP Nadda had informed through a letter to Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in December 2016 that the approval will not be given immediately to start AIIMS in Kerala.
