The much-awaited admission process for Bhubaneswar AIIMS has begun. The Union ministry of health and family welfare has asked the selected 50 students, to verify their credentials such as, proof of educational qualification, category and date of birth at the institute latest by August 10. Admission fee is Rs 20,000.
The admission process will complete by August 30 and classes will start early in September. Just like the five other AIIMS in Bhopal, Jodhpur, Raipur, Patna and Rishikesh, 27 general category, 13 OBC, seven SC and three ST students were selected for admission to the institute. There are eight students from Odisha in the list of 50.
Sources said city AIIMS students would be temporarily housed in private apartments around the upcoming institute at Sijua. Though construction at the around 100-acre campus at Sijua is going at a fast pace, staff quarters and students’ hostels are not ready as yet. The Centre has requested the state to arrange private flats to accommodate the students and staff on a temporary basis.
