Describing it as a highly prestigious institute for Punjab, the Chief Minister said the Bathinda AIIMS will be of immense benefit to large number of patients in the Malwa belt.The Chief Minister assured the AIIMS team of all support from the state government to facilitate Covid care at the facility, where some of the ancillary construction and other works have been delayed due to the outbreak of the pandemic.The Chief Minister was informed that the Hospital is set to launch MRI, CT SCAN & X-RAY facilities soon, while the MBBS College-2019 batch will also be shifted to the premises spread over 179 acres land provided by the state government. An amount of Rs 328 crore has been spent so far, against the project cost of Rs 925 crores.Chief Secretary Vini Mahajan said the state government would extend all help to the institute to put the Covid and other essential infrastructure in place in order to scale up Punjab’s fight against the pandemic.

With regard to construction of a bus stand and increasing the frequency of buses, she said the same would be done after the Covid restrictions are completely lifted.
