NEW DELHI: Prime Minister Narendra Modi is set to dedicate to the nation the In-Patient Department (IPD) and Operation Theater (OT) services at AIIMS, Deoghar during his visit to Deoghar and Patna tomorrow.

PM Modi laid the foundation stone of AIIMS, Deoghar on May 25, 2018, with an aim to boost the healthcare sector for the entire region. The objective of AIIMS Deoghar is to achieve the dual purpose of providing super-speciality healthcare to the population while also helping to create a large pool of doctors and other health workers in this region.

Before 2014, there were only seven AIIMS, but in the last eight years, 16 AIIMS have been approved. Out of these 16 AIIMS, MBBS classes and OPD services have started in 10 new AIIMS. Limited IPD services have also been operationalized in six AIIMS.

Central government efforts also saw a phenomenal increase in the number of medical seats across the country, thereby substantially increasing the number of doctors in the country.


The number of undergraduate seats has increased from around 51,000 before 2014 to around 90,000 seats in 2022, which is an increase of almost 80%. The number of post-graduation seats has increased by 93% from around 31,000 seats before 2014 to around 60,000 seats.
