Telangana Government has announced the establishment of medical colleges in all the districts. This was announced by Finance Minister T. Harish Rao while presenting the state budget for 2022-23. The state has set a goal to set up at least one medical college in each district by 2023 with a cost of Rs. 1,000 crores.

In 2022, eight new medical colleges would be launched in Asifabad, Bhupalpally, Vikarabad, Sircilla, Janagaon, Kamareddy, Karimnagar, and Khammam. By 2023, new medical colleges would be established in the other eight districts namely – Medak, Medchal, Ranga Reddy, Mulugu, Warangal, Narayanpet, Gadwal, and Yadadri. Over and above these, eight colleges have already been sanctioned at Mancherial, Ramagundam, Jagtial, Wanaparthy, Nagarkurnool, Mahbubabad, Kothagudem, and Sangreddy and would start functioning next year, added the Finance Minister.

To ensure there are adequate super-specialty hospitals in Hyderabad, the State government has also decided to establish Telangana Institutions of Medical Sciences (TIMS) on four sides of the city.

“These hospitals will be established at Gachibowli, LB Nagar, Alwal, and Erragadda. Each of these super-specialty hospitals will have 1000 beds and the needy people need not look at corporate hospitals for their healthcare needs. Likewise, there is an addition of 2,000 beds that are being prepared at NIMS. With this, the total number of beds in NIMS would rise to 3,489,” Harish Rao in his budget speech said.

The Finance Minister also disclosed the KCR Nutrition Kits endeavor to be executed in nine districts namely, Adilabad, Komaram Bheem Asifabad, Bhadrachalam Kothagudem, Jayashankar Bhupalpally, Kamareddy, Vikarabad, Mulugu, Jogulamba Gadwal, and Nagarkurnool to devastate the issue of anemia among lactating mothers.
