Karnataka Government Suggests Kanakapura for AIIMS-like Institute
Karnataka government is keen that an All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) be set up in Kanakapura taluk.

Following an announcement on sanctioning an AIIMS-like institute to the state by Union Health Minister Jagat Prakash Nadda recently, the Department of Medical Education proposed names of three places.

Sources in the Department said, "We have proposed three places — Vijayapura, Dharwad and Kanakapura.

Of them, our preference is Kanakapura. However, the centre is the final authority. We will have to provide 200 acres of litigation-free land, and basic infrastructure and all the other things will be taken care of by the Centre."

However, based on the proposals, central government's expert committee will visit the State and inspect the proposed places.

Medical Education Minister Sharan Prakash Patil said, "We have suggested three places keeping in mind the availability of land. If the central government needs to set it up in any other place, we are capable of providing the required land."

Benefits of AIIMS


Health care facilities in Karnataka will get a major boost. Along with offering medical courses, AIIMS will concentrate on research activities and also provide healthcare services with a 750-bed hospital.

There are currently 13 AIIMS in India. The initiative by the Union Health Ministry is expected to offset the shortage of doctors. This will also increase the number of MBBS and PG medical seats in the country.
