NEW DELHI: Government tonight approved setting up of a Central Armed Police Forces Institute of Medical Sciences (CAPFILMS) along with a 500-bed general hospital, a 300-bed super specialty hospital and a nursing college in Delhi.

The creation of the institute will facilitate attraction of talented professionals in the Central Armed Police Forces and their retention, besides providing in-house training, specialisation, post graduate, super specialty post graduate courses to in-service healthcare professionals.

This will not only boost the morale of the force personnel, but also provide required trained technical hands in the medical set up of CAPFs for the benefit of their personnel and families, an official statement said.

The Rs 1366.53 crore project is expected to be completed in five to six years. Land measuring 48.80 acres has already been purchased at Maiden Garhi through the Central Public Works Department (CPWD).

Because of the nature of their duties, CAPF personnel have to stay away from their families for most of the duration of their service.

Therefore, providing basic minimum health care facilities to the force personnel, as well as to their families on the pattern of the defence services is an urgent and important need for the effective and efficient functioning of CAPFs and their morale.

The institute shall be registered as a society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860 and shall have a Governing Body and a Governing Council, under the Ministry of Home Affairs.
