Foundation stone to be laid next week

The AIIMS would have a 960-bedded hospital with 600 MBBS and 360 nursing seats. The institute was proposed to come up at a cost of Rs 1500 crore, of which the Central government had sanctioned Rs 200 crore in the budget. The State government had handed over the TB Sanatorium midst the hills for construction of the institution after a surveying the site during February and holding interactions with the minister for health Dr Kamineni Srinivasa Rao.
