February 20, 2024

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate six new AIIMS institutions, including those in Samba (Jammu and Kashmir) and Rae Bareli (Uttar Pradesh) in the next six days, officials said on Monday. He will dedicate the AIIMS in Samba district at an event in Jammu on Tuesday and the remaining five in Rajkot, Mangalagiri, Bathinda, Rae Bareli, and Kalyani at a program in Rajkot, Gujarat, on February 25.

The foundation of AIIMS Jammu was laid by Prime Minister Modi in February 2019, and it is being established under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana. The hospital, spanning over 227 acres and costing more than Rs 1,660 crore, is equipped with facilities such as 720 beds, a medical college with 125 seats, a nursing college with 60 seats, AYUSH block with 30 beds, and various accommodations and amenities.

In addition to inaugurating various medical and nursing colleges across the country, Modi will lay the foundation for new medical colleges and advanced health facilities under the PM-Ayushman Bharat Health Infrastructure Mission. He will also dedicate advanced research labs and facilities of ICMR and various National Health Mission (NHM) projects.

To ensure the safety and quality of food consumed by millions of Indians, Modi will inaugurate advanced food safety infrastructure projects and facilities in multiple states. With a total cost of Rs 11,391.79 crore, these health projects aim to bring a wave of healthcare advancements, ensuring quality, affordable, and accessible healthcare while expanding medical education in the country.

The new medical and nursing colleges are expected to nurture the next generations of doctors and healthcare professionals. Officials emphasize that for a nation to truly progress, its citizens must be healthy, both physically and mentally. The new healthcare infrastructure projects and facilities are anticipated to propel India towards a healthier, happier, and more prosperous tomorrow.

Officials highlight a significant rise in the health budget from Rs 37,330 crore in 2013-14 under the UPA to Rs 90,658.63 crore in 2024-25 under the NDA, marking an increase of approximately 143 percent.
