Central government announced setting up of AIIMs like hospital across the nation to ensure all the people get quality medical treatment in 2015. While most of the states finalized the placed and work has been going on, Tamilnadu got behind in the race as there was several tier 2 cities fought for the hospital. Among them Perunthurai, Kancheepuram, Tanjore and Madurai were in race for getting the final nod. Even recently, CM of Tamilnadu announced it may set up the facility in Tanjore.
