JIPMER to get autonomous status

Our Bureau

New Delhi , Sept. 8

The Union Cabinet has approved converting Jawaharlal Institute of Post-Graduate Medical Education and Research, Pondicherry (JIPMER) into an autonomous institution through an Act of Parliament to bring it at par with similarly placed institutions such as AIIMS, New Delhi, and PGIMER, Chandigarh.

The Cabinet decision would enable JIPMER to have its own policy for selection and recruitment of manpower.

JIPMER would be able to create its own standards of medical education and research as is being done by AIIMS and PGIMER. An Act of Parliament will enable JIPMER to get the status of a University and not a deemed University. It will give more freedom and benefits to the institution in terms of better fund mobilisation and organisational development initiatives.

JIPMER is currently an attached and subordinate office of the Directorate-General of Health Services. Therefore, for every major works - be it construction or expansion of hospital buildings or residential quarters, renovation of wards, creation and filling up of Group `A' and `B' posts, the prior sanction and approval of DGHS is required.
