All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (Amendment) Bill, 2012Edit

The All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (Amendment) Bill, 2012, was introduced in the Lok Sabha on 27 August 2012. This bill replaced an ordinance that allowed the six AIIMS—like institutes to become operational by September 2012.[4] Lok Sabha passed the AIIMS (Amendment) Bill, 2012 on 30 August 2012.[5] The proposed measure helped the centre to change the status of the six new AIIMS registered under the Indian Societies Registration Act to be an Autonomous Corporate Body like the AIIMS in Delhi. AIIMS(Amendment) Bill, 2012 was introduced in Rajya Sabha on 3 September 2012[6][7] and passed on 4 September 2012.[8][9]
