Madurai AIIMS invites pre-qualification bids for buildings at site

Four years after Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in Madurai, the union government on Thursday invited prequalification applications for the construction of buildings and site development of the facility.

As per the notification, the project would be executed in two phases and completed in 33 months.

Based on the prequalification round, firms will be selected for taking part in the final tender.
