Four more new AIIMS-like institutes and 30 more upgrades proposed as part of the 12th plan; this will take the total number of AIIMS-like institutes to 12 and the total number of upgrades to 56

Following is from a report in Times of India.

The report of the steering committee on health for the 12th five year plan (incorporating reports of all working groups and deliberations in Committee meetings) has suggested opening of four new prototypes of premiere All India Institute of Medical Sciences ( AIIMS) in addition to the eight already approved.

… Union health ministry is in the process of constructing six AIIMS-like institutes in Patna, Raipur, Bhopal, Bhubaneswar, Jodhpur and Rishikesh at a cost of Rs 847 crore each, up from Rs 332 crore that was originally estimated. There are expected to be ready by July, 2012.

The Planning Commission has given approval to two more AIIMS-like institutes in Uttar Pradesh and West Bengal. …

With 26 medical institutions have been approved for upgrade, the panel has said an additional 30 medical colleges established at least 20 years ago be identified for support through Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojna.

“Other medical colleges, in private or voluntary sector may also be considered for upgrade and strengthening for starting new postgraduate disciplines and increasing post-graduate seats,” the report says.

In Odisha, as per the timeline, SCB medical college in Cuttack was established in 1944, VSS in Burla was established in 1959 and MKCG in Berhampur was established in 1962. All three of them satisfy the above mentioned criteria of being established 20 years ago. Considering that none of the 26 approved upgrades are from Odisha, and 4 states currently are approved for both new AIIMS-like institutes as well as upgrades (WB,Bihar, MP, UP) the Odisha government should push for all three of its existing government medical colleges to be upgraded during the 12th plan.

Dr. Subrat K. Acharya, HOD and professor of Gastroenterology at AIIMS New Delhi has been offered the Directorship of the AIIMS-like institute in Bhubaneswar

Following is an excerpt from a report in Times of India.

Four top doctors of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) have been chosen as directors for the four upcoming AIIMS prototypes. The Union health ministry has sent a letter to professor of neurology Dr Kameshwar Prasad, professors of medicine Dr S K Sharma and Dr Rita Sood and professor of gastroenterology Dr S K Acharya offering them the coveted posts.

While Dr Prasad has been asked to take over the institute in Raipur, Dr Sharma has been offered the Jodhpur branch, Dr Sood the Rishikesh branch and Dr Acharya the Bhubaneswar branch. All of them have been asked to join on November 1.

… Union health minister Ghulam Nabi Azad said in the Rajya Sabha recently that the medical colleges of these six institutions will be functional by next year. Ministry officials said the colleges would be functional from July, 2012, while the hospitals would be in place by early 2013.

"For the first year of medical education, students don’t require hospital visits. That’s why the colleges will start from next year," an official said.

Each of the six medical colleges – a Rs 10,000-crore project – will have 100 MBBS seats. Each of the hospitals will have 960 beds, including 500 beds for the medical college hospital, 300 beds for speciality/super speciality and 100 beds for ICU/accident trauma.

The Union health ministry has also put three of the best known existing medical institutes – AIIMS, Delhi; JIPMER, Puducherry; and PHI, Chandigarh, in charge of helping the six new institutes stand on their feet. AIIMS, Delhi, has been mentoring the two new institutions in Patna and Bhubaneswar, PGI has been mentoring those coming up in Rishikesh and Jodhpur, while JIPMER has been overseeing the prototypes in Bhopal and Raipur.

"The existing institutes will help the new ones select their faculty, establish their laboratory network, conduct entrance exams and plan their curriculum," an official added.

The web page of the AIIMS New Delhi Department of Gastroenterology is at http://www.aiims.edu/aiims/departments/Gastro/gastrofaculty.htm and lists Prof. Subrat K Acharya as its HOD.

A doctor friend tells me that Prof. Subrat K Acharya did his MBBS from SCB Medical College, Cuttack.

Update: Prof. Acharya did his MBBS from MKCG Medical college; but he was a faculty at SCB medical college before he went to AIIMS New Delhi.

Lots of empty seats in professional courses even after a second counseling

Following is an excerpt from a report in Telegraph.

At the end of the first phase of web counselling for engineering courses, around 12,000 of the 38,000-odd seats were filled up. The huge number of empty seats forced the state government to conduct another round of counselling “to fill up as many seats as possible”. However, OJEE authorities said just about 3,000 more candidates have shown interest in admission, which still leaves more than 23,000 seats vacant.

… The faulty and lengthy e-counselling process has put off many aspirants, forcing them to look for other options,” said the principal of a city-based engineering college.

For the medical courses, the second phase of centralised counselling ended last evening. Although MBBS and BDS (dental) seats in all the three government colleges were filled up, 70 of 100 BDS seats at the Hi-Tech (private) Medical College here were still lying vacant.

There are 150 MBBS seats each in the government colleges – VSS, Burla, SCB Medical College, Cuttack, and MKCG, Berhampur. At Hi-Tech, there are 100 MBBS seats and all of them have been filled up. This year, a total of 2,203 medical aspirants had qualified the OJEE and the first phase of counselling was conducted on July 14 and 15.

In other streams, only 40 to 60 per cent seats have found takers. Approximately 4,000 of the 7,000-odd MBA seats and 2,000 of nearly 4,000 MCA seats are up for grabs. In pharmacy, around 1,200 out of 2,000-plus seats are lying vacant.

With much more seats than the number of students, the government, OJEE and BPUT authorities need to simplify and shorten the process of counseling. They may also consider scrapping the OJEE exams in the various fields, except the medical part.

New AIIMS-like Institutions and upgrdation of medical colleges to AIIMS level; Bihar to have 3, UP to have 6, Odisha complacent and incompetent at 1.

The page at http://mohfw.nic.in/showlink.php?id=698 documents the progress of the various AIIMS-like institutes across the country and as one can find out the progress is the least with respect to AIIMS-like institute in Bhubaneswar. That is a shame.

A bigger shame is that many other states have managed to get approval for additional AIIMS level institutions while Odisha, despite our many emails to the CMO, has not tried that. Odisha should push hard to get both MKCG and VSS Medical colleges upgraded to the AIIMS level.

Following is a list of what has so far been approved obtained from pages 3,4,6 and 8 of the document at http://mohfw.nic.in/showlink.php?id=698.

Sardar Valabhai Patel Post-graduate Institute of Paediatrics in Cuttack

(Thanks to a reader who pointed us to this.)

Sardar Valabhai Patel Post-graduate Institute of Paediatrics in Cuttack is a post graduate institute. It seems to be an independent institute with some links with the SCB Medical College. Following are excerpts from couple of old articles on it.

From http://www.hindu.com/2007/03/31/stories/2007033113230200.htm:

CUTTACK: With Japanese grant-in aid of Rs. 37 crores, the city-based Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Post-graduate Institute of Paediatrics, known as Sishu Bhawan, the only referral centre for children in Eastern India is now ready after a major facelift. The renovated hospital will be inaugurated on April 2, according to its superintendent N.K. Mohanty.

"The expansion project, which got under way in April 2005, was completed as per the schedule," says Dr. Mohanty.

Supervision

The Japan government-sponsored Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has supervised the progress of the project work which includes a two-storied international standard building over an area of 18,000 square feet. Japan-based Yokogawa Architects and Engineers have designed the building while Sumitomo Mitsui Construction Corporation took up the civil work, say JICA sources.

The building houses OPD, casualty, laboratories, radio-imaging section, OTs, central sterilisation unit and a total of 116 beds, including 21 ICU beds, and 30 newborn special care beds, says Dr. Mohanty.

As per the MoU signed with the Japan government, the hospital now has the state-of-the-art equipments like ultrasound, ventilators, X-Ray, multi-parameter monitors, pulse oxy-meters and defibrillators by the Tokyo-based Ogawa Seikii worth over Rs. 25 crores.

From http://www.telegraphindia.com/1081004/jsp/nation/story_9923481.jsp.

The state government’s bid to overcome deficiencies exposed by the Medical Council of India (MCI) has hit a roadblock.

The MCI had recommended more faculty members in keeping with an increased number of seats for the MBBS course in the three state-run medical colleges.

The State Administrative Tribunal has stayed the recruitment process of 294 posts of senior residents or tutors at the MKCG Medical College and Hospital, VSS Medical College and Hospital, SCB Medical College and Hospital, and Sardar Vallabhai Patel Postgraduate Institute of Paediatrics.

Health Minister’s status report in the Lok Sabha on the AIIMS-like institutes

Following is from http://164.100.24.209/newls/textofdebatedetail.aspx?sdate=10/23/2008.

श्री राम कृपाल यादव (पटना)  :  उपाध्यक्ष महोदय, मैं आपके माध्यम से माननीय स्वास्थ्य मंत्री जी का ध्यान आकर्षित करना चाहता हूं। पूरे देश में छह अखिल भारतीय अनुसंधान संस्थान (एम्स) खोलने की बात हुई थी। मेरे संसदीय क्षेत्र पटना में भी एम्स खोलने की बात कही गई थी। दुर्भाग्यपूर्ण स्थिति है कि लगभग पांच साल पहले इसका काम शुरू हुआ था, लेकिन आज तक केवल चाहरदीवारी का ही निर्माण हुआ है। शिलान्यास के समय एम्स को कार्यरूप में शुरू करने के लिए वर्ष 2009 तक का समय रखा गया था। बिहार में कोई भी उत्कृष्ठ अस्पताल नहीं है। इस कारण दिल्ली के एम्स अस्पताल में 60 परसेंट बिहार के लोग अपना इलाज करवाने आते हैं। बिहार में गरीबी है, फटेहाली है इस कारण कई लोग इलाज कराने के लिए दिल्ली आ भी नहीं पाते हैं। बिहार के लोगों को स्वास्थ्य लाभ लेने के लिए बहुत दिक्कतों का सामना करना पड़ता है। अगर बिहार में एम्स अस्पताल खुल जाएगा, तो न सिर्फ बिहार के लोगों को, बल्कि बिहार से सटे नेपाल, असम तथा आसपास के इलाकों के लोग भी लाभांवित हो सकेंगे। कई बार हमने सदन के माध्यम से माननीय मंत्री जी का ध्यान आकर्षित कराया है। आश्वासन मिलने के बावजूद भी आज तक इस बारे में तेज रफ्तार से काम नहीं हो रहा है। पता नहीं यह काम कितने वर्षों में पूरा होगा।

उपाध्यक्ष महोदय : आपने अपनी बात कह दी है। अब आप समाप्त कीजिए।  You are now repeating the same thing.

श्री राम कृपाल यादव (पटना)  : कई लोगों के पास दिल्ली इलाज के लिए आने के लिए भाड़े के पैसे नहीं होते हैं। मंत्री जी यहां बैठे हैं, मैं आपके माध्यम से माननीय मंत्री जी से कहना चाहता हूं कि वे इस बारे में उत्तर दें कि कब से काम शुरू होगा और कब काम खत्म होगा। बिहार जैसे गरीब देश में लोगों को इलाज कराने में बहुत परेशानी होती है।

SHRI KHARABELA SWAIN (BALASORE): Sir, hon. Minister is here.  He should reply not only to the hon. Member’s question but other questions also.  I have asked a number of questions.

MR. DEPUTY-SPEAKER: I cannot compel the Minister to reply.

THE MINISTER OF HEALTH AND FAMILY WELFARE (DR. ANBUMANI RAMADOSS): Sir, under the Pradhan Mantri Swasthya Suraksha Yojana the Government of India intends to start six new AIIMS like institutions in States like  Bihar, Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand and Chhattisgarh.  The CCA had given approval only in 2006.  Since then we have been going through a lot of process.  One tender was un-responsive.  Another tender was a single bidder.  We had to go through the project management consultants.  In all we have to go through a lot of process and there was a delay.  I accept the responsibility for delay on part of my Ministry.  Nevertheless, I had again asked them to quicken the process.  Finally, I could say that the construction work has started in five out of six AIIMS like institutions, including Bihar, Orissa and Rajasthan.  Except Bhopal, work at other five sites has already begun and at Bhopal the work will start in the beginning of November.

          I categorically assure that the work has started and the entire construction work will be over in another two-and-a-half to three years and it will be fully functional.  Not only that, we also want to upgrade some more institutions in Northern part of the country.  We have added some more institutions, which again after getting the approval we will inform the hon. House.

SHRI J.M. AARON RASHID (PERIYAKULAM): Sir, since the hon. Minister belongs to Tamil Nadu, he should see to it that Tamil Nadu also has such an institution.

SHRI P.S. GADHAVI (KUTCH): Sir, I would like to raise a very important issue concerning my constituency regarding the development of Jakhau Fishery Harbour Project.… (Interruptions)

श्री राम कृपाल यादव (पटना)  : महोदय, मैं स्वास्थ्य मंत्री जी को तमाम राज्य के लोगों की तरफ से धन्यवाद देना चाहता हूं, जिनको इन्होंने उपहार देने का काम किया है। स्वाईं जी आप भी मंत्री जी को धन्यवाद दे दीजिए।

श्री खारबेल स्वाईं (बालासोर)  : मैं कई बार मंत्री जी को धन्यवाद दे चुका हूं।

Orissa should push for the upgradation of MKCG Medical college to the level of an AIIMS.

Developing the Berhampur-Bhubaneswar knowledge corridor

The existing and would be Knowledge Corridors of India[1] are:

(i) Kharagpur-Kolkata(116 kms)-Kalyani (50 kms from Howrah Station):  Kharagpur has the IIT, World Class Central University will be near Kolkata, IIM is in Kolkata, ISI is in Kolkata, and IISER will be in Haringhata, Kalyani.

(ii) Mumbai-Pune 150 kms (176 kms by rail): Mumbai has the IIT, Pune has the IISER, the world class central university will be in Pune.

(iii) Bangalore-Mysore 140 kms (138 kms by rail): IISc and IIM are in Bangalore, World Class central University will be in Mysore.

(iv) Indore-Bhopal 186 kms (218 kms by rail): IIM is in Indore, IIT will be in Indore, IISER and World class central university will be in Bhopal.

(v) Amritsar-Ropar-Chandigarh (217 kms): IISER is near Chandigarh, World class central university will be in Amritsar, IIT will be in Ropar 45 kms from Chandigarh.

Thus we propose the following major Knowledge Corridor (rather network) in Orissa[2]:

Cuttack-Bhubaneswar-Berhampur and Bhubaneswar-Puri-Vedanta University  

Berhampur to Bhubaneswar is 179 kms by road[3]  and 165 kms by rail. The following table shows the distance by rail with respect to the Cuttack-Bhubaneswar-Berhampur corridor.

To develop the Berhampur-Bhubaneswar corridor it is most important that anchor institutions be established in Berhampur. With IIT and IIIT seeming to slip more towards the Bhubaneswar side all out efforts should be made for an NIT (one of the proposed 10 new NITs in the 11th plan) in Berhampur and to upgrade MKCG Medical College to the AIIMS level. For the later one may note that some of the other states will be having multiple institutions either upgraded or newly made to AIIMS level.

 


 

[1] Some others are: Raipur-Bilaspur 111 kms (110 kms by rail): Raipur has NIT and will have IIM, Bilaspur will have a central university.

Kozhikode-Kochi 181 kms (190 kms by rail): Kozhikode has the IIM; Kochi will have the world class central university.

Kochi-Trivendrum 220 kms (206 kms by rail): IISER and IIST (Indian Inst. of Space Sc. & Technology) are being made at Trivendrum

[2] A second corridor in Orissa that could be developed is: Raurkela-Jharsuguda-Sambalpur 173 kms (151 kms by rail)

Observations:

  1. Orissa does not have enough rich families that can afford to send their kids to private medical colleges.
  2. Thus there is a need for more government medical colleges.
  3. Among the private medical colleges the order of preference seems to be KIMS followed by IMS followed by Hi-Tech. Its interesting that among these three Hi-Tech is the oldest and the other two only got MCI approval this year. However the other two are either part of or associated with deemed universities.
