Gurugram: Work on the much-awaited All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Rewari’s Majra village is expected to start from March next year as the Union health ministry has taken possession of 189 acres of land for the project. The remaining 14 acres will be handed over to the ministry in a few weeks, according to Union minister Rao Inderjit Singh, who is also the MP from Gurugram.

The groundbreaking ceremony of the project is expected to be organised after the Gujarat Assembly elections in accordance with Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s schedule. Singh said a team from the Union health ministry recently visited Rewari to take physical possession of the land.

The district administration of Rewari has completed the process of handing over 189 acres out of the 203 acres required, and registry of the remaining 14 acres in the favour of the administration, which is needed to hand over possession to the health ministry, is likely to be completed in the next few weeks. “We have sought time from the PM and we are expected to get his time for the groundbreaking ceremony after the Gujarat elections,” said Singh.

The MP added that the construction of AIIMS in Rewari will benefit a large number of people. The 22th AIIMS in the country, it will be constructed at a cost of Rs 1,300 crore.

The announcement for setting up an AIIMS in Rewari was made several years back but has been delayed due to land acquisition issues. Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar on Singh’s request had announced plans to bring AIIMS in Rewari during an election rally at Bawal in 2015.

In 2019, just before the Lok Sabha polls, PM Modi too announced that an AIIMS would be set up in Rewari. Initially, the institute was planned to be built in Rewari’s Manethi village. However, the government faced hurdles in acquiring land there as most of the area there was found to be part of Aravali forest area. Due to this the project was shifted to Majra village.

People from Rewari, Mahendergarh, Bhiwani, Rohtak, Jhajjar, Mewat, Palwal, Faridabad and parts of Rajasthan will benefit from the construction of AIIMS in Majra. The project will also provide 3,000 direct and 10,000 indirect job opportunities.

In April 2021, the Haryana government allotted Rs 80 crore for the purchase of 150 acres for the project, as the government had 60 acres of panchayat land. AIIMS Majra will have 750 beds, a medical college and a nursing college, ICU specialty, super specialties and facilities for 1,500 OPD patients per day. Besides, there will be private wards and a trauma centre. The campus will have a night shelter for the patients’ attendants as well as a guesthouse, 1,000 seat auditorium and hostel and residential facilities for staff and students.
