Address Faculty Shortage Immediately In AIIMS: Parliamentary Panel

AIIMS Locations Fixed On Availability Of Healthcare Facilities
These new AIIMS are being set up in a phased manner in view of resources constraint in accordance with fund availability," Health Minister, J P Nadda said during Question Hour.

NEW DELHI: Expressing concern over 232 faculty posts lying vacant in AIIMS, a parliamentary panel has recommended that the shortage be addressed immediately, saying “it has a direct bearing on the delivery of quality healthcare and imparting of quality education”.

“The Committee, therefore, recommends that the faculty shortage at AIIMS must be squarely addressed without further delay as it has a direct bearing on the delivery of quality healthcare and imparting of quality education,” said the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Health and Family Welfare in its 93rd report on Demands for Grants 2016-17.

The Committee also recommended intensive monitoring of the execution of the expansion work of OPD at AIIMS so that the project is executed within the approved cost and designated timeline.

It sought to be apprised of time overrun and cost escalation, if any, of the 12 completed projects and the reasons behind the shelved projects.

It also asked the Administration Department to inform it about the approved cost of projects in progress and the timeline for their execution and operationalisation.

The Committee also took a serious view of the fact that when asked to indicate the progress of pending development projects at AIIMS, the Department merely stated that “every effort is being made to resolve the issues… with no time and cost overruns…”

“The Committee had expected the Department to apprise it of the status of the completion of all pre-project formalities, approved costs of projects and set a time frame for their implementation and expenditure incurred,” it said.

The Committee, while strongly disapproving of the fashion in which the Department has responded to the query of the Committee, asked it to furnish details in connection with all pending or ongoing development projects at AIIMS.
