NEW DELHI, Sept 29 � The proposal for establishment of All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Assam is still alive and the Centre is in talks with the State Government, Union Minister for Health and Family Welfare Dr Harsh Vardhan said on Monday.

Addressing a media conference, the Minister confirmed that a proposal is pending with the Centre to set up an AIIMS in Assam and his Ministry is in discussion with the State Government. The State Government has submitted a proposal for setting up the medical institute identifying three spots including Kamrup, Nagaon and Mangaldai districts. A final decision on the location, however, is yet to be taken.

Dr Harsh Vardhan said that the Centre has laid particular emphasis on addressing the health needs of the North Eastern Region. �This part of the country deserves concentrated action. I plan to organise a detailed visit covering the region,� he said.

On July 13, online entrance examinations were held in 13 towns of the region for filling up the North-east �open� category seats for the MBBS course of NEIGRIHMS, Shillong. Also, the number of seats for the post-graduate course in MD (General Medicine) was increased from 14 to 20, he said.
