An approval to this effect was given at a meeting of the Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs, chaired by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, here. Each of these institutions would consist of 850-bedded hospitals providing medical treatment in 39 speciality and super-speciality disciplines, Finance Minister P Chidambaram told reporters. A Group of Ministers would be set up to look into "how best to fund and manage these institutions to make them truly equivalent to AIIMS (All India Institute of Medical Sciences)," he said, adding that here should not be any further delay in establishing these institutes. "Construction will start in 2006-07 itself", he said, adding the scheme was likely to be implemented in three years time. The state governments concerned would provide 100 acres of developed land free of cost and other infrastructural facilities like water, power, road connectivity for setting up and running these institutions, Chidambaram said. The institutes would also provide undergraduate medical education with 100 intake capacity per year and PG/doctoral courses as per the norms of the Medical Council of India.
