Nod for societies for AIIMS-like institutions

Aarti Dhar

NEW DELHI: The Union Cabinet on Monday gave the go-ahead for a proposal to form societies for the six All-India Institute of Medical Sciences-like institutions, being set up under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana (PMSSY).

This will help in faster execution of projects and release of funds. These societies will be functional till these institutions are brought under an Act.

Registration

Each one will be registered as a society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860, an official release issued here after a Cabinet meeting said. Each society will have a two-tier organisation and management structure.

The Cabinet approved the PMSSY in March 2006. Under Phase-I, the AIIMS-like institutions are being set up in Bihar (Patna), Chhattisgarh (Raipur), Madhya Pradesh (Bhopal), Orissa (Bhubaneswar), Rajasthan (Jodhpur) and Uttarakhand (Rishikesh) at an estimated cost of Rs. 840 crore per institution, including nursing colleges.
