In a move in boosting Karnataka’s Health and Medical Education sector, the Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr Mansukh Mandaviya gave a green signal for establishing an All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in Karnataka.

The assurance was given during a meeting between Karnataka Health Minister Dr K Sudhakar and Union Minister Dr Mansukh Mandaviya in New Delhi on Wednesday.

“I thank our Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya for assuring an AIIMS for Karnataka. This will greatly benefit the state and further enhance the state’s health and medical education,” Sudhakar said.

Karnataka had earlier submitted a request to the Union government to start an AIIMS in the state to enhance public healthcare and medical education infrastructure.

Once approved, the new institute will come up at Kyalasanahalli near Hennur Main road in Bengaluru.
