PM Narendra Modi gave a big gift to Tamil Nadu on Wednesday, January 12, and it was a big deal. He has opened 11 new medical schools in the state by videoconference. As well as this, he also opened a new campus of the Central Institute of Classical Tamil (CICT) in the same state.
All of the medical colleges were opened in Virudhunagar and Namakkal in Tamil Nadu. They have a total capacity of 1,450 seats and are in the districts of Tiruppur and Tiruvallur, Nagapattinam and Dindigul, and Ramanathapuram Dindigul, Ariyalur, and Krishnagiri. Admissions will quickly begin. The latest medical colleges are projected to total around Rs 4,000 crore, of which around Rs 2,145 crore is offered by the central govt and the rest by TN Gov.
More than 1.5 billion people will gain.
The latest colleges have been built under a program run by the government. They are attached to the existing District and Referral Hospitals developed. The new initiative will benefit over 1.5 crore people in these districts and surrounding areas.
Chief Minister MK Stalin and Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya were there to open the new hospital.
24 crores were spent on CICT’s new campus, built now.
The Central Institute of Classical Tamil (CICT) will move from a rented building in Chennai to three campuses. The Prime Minister’s perception to safeguard Indian heritage and encourage traditional languages is reflected in the new CICT college. The complex, built for Rs 24 crore, is fully funded by the central government.
e-library, seminar room, and multimedia room
All of these places are on the new campus. There are also meeting rooms and a multimedia room on the new campus. The library at the institute has more than 45,000 books from ancient Tamil that are worth a lot of money and time. It wants to translate and put out a book called “Thirukkural” in many different Indian and foreign languages, as well as in 100 of them.
