The premier All India Institute of Medical Sciences may soon be replicated within the NCR, bringing cheer to numerous patients who come to the institute everyday.

The institute has proposed to open a campus 'AIIMS II' either in Noida or in any other place in Haryana adjoining the capital, including Gurgaon.

A proposal has been approved by the governing body of the institution headed by Union Health Minister Anbumani Ramadoss.

“We are facing a constraint of infrastructure for our new expansions as our existing 166 acre campus cannot provide enough space for increasing demands of the institution,” Shailesh Yadav, Deputy Director (Administration) said.

In its proposal sent to the government, the AIIMS has demanded 300 acres of land either in Noida or NCR in Haryana, keeping in view easy accessibility from the main campus, Yadav said.
