Promotion of research need of the hour

AIIMS Director Dr M Srinivas, in his order, has stated that it was learned from the faculty, among others, that there is an urgent need to reform the selection process for PhD and award of institute fellowships. Also, it is the need of the hour to promote high quality research in AIIMS. Also, it came to the fore that an in-house funding mechanism should be developed to increase the number of meritorious PhD students in AIIMS.

Arrangement of 200 crores under Prime Minister's Research Fellow

There is a need to increase the number of students and award institute fellowships to enable high impact research at AIIMS. For this, it has been proposed to start 40-50 Ph.D. To promote the institute fellowship, a provision of Rs 200 crore will be made under the Prime Minister's Research Fellow (PMRF) scheme.
