PM Narendra Modi to inaugurate 11 new medical colleges in Tamil Nadu

Today, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will open 11 new government medical colleges in Tamil Nadu, as well as the new campus of the Central Institute of Classical Tamil (CICT). Medical colleges will open across the southern state, while the central institute’s new campus will open in Chennai, the state capital. According to a statement from the Prime Minister’s Office, the inauguration will be held via video conferencing at 4 p.m. (PMO).

PM Modi said the new medical colleges will “enhance health infrastructure and ensure affordable healthcare to the people of Tamil Nadu” on Twitter on Tuesday.

The colleges were built at a cost of nearly 4,000 crore, with the Union government contributing around 2,415 crore and the state providing the rest. The Nilgiris, Thiruvallur, Nagapattinam, Namakkal, Dindigul, Kallakurichi, Ariyalur, Ramanathapuram, Krishnagiri, Tiruppur, and Virudhunagar are the 11 districts where medical institutes have been established. The 11 new medical colleges will have a total capacity of 1,450 seats.

The institutes are part of the Centre’s ‘Establishment of New Medical Colleges Attached to Existing District/Referral Hospitals’ scheme. Medical colleges are established in districts where neither a government nor a private medical college exists.

Meanwhile, the Central government has fully funded and built the new CICT campus, which cost a total of 24 crore. It has three levels and includes a large library, seminar rooms, a multimedia room, and an e-library.

The new campus was built in accordance with PM Modi’s “vision to protect and preserve Indian heritage and promote classical languages,” according to a statement from the PMO.

The statement went on to explain how CICT works, stating that it promotes classical Tamil by conducting research in order to establish the “ancientness and uniqueness of Tamil language.” The institute has a large collection of over 45,000 ancient Tamil books and offers a fellowship to its students, among other things.

The PMO statement continued, “The new campus will provide an efficient working environment for the institute in its pursuit of promoting classical Tamil around the world.”

Until now, the CICT has operated out of a rented space.
