With the approval of UP Cabinet to set up a medical university-cum-hospital in Greater Noida on Saturday, the Greater Noida Authority has announced to start the university from April this year.
The authority has said that the academic session of the university will be started from the current session and temporarily it will be run from Gautam Buddh University. The proposed university will come up in Kasna area at a cost of Rs 760 crore.

Initially, MBBS, MS, MD and some other courses will be introduced and other related courses will be introduced after constructing the building of the university. Last year the UP Government had started OPD services in the hospital of the proposed medical university and at present there are 24 doctors working, while on average 500 patients visit the OPD services daily. The university building is being constructed on lines of green building facility with high capacity solar system to meet electricity demand.
“As the UP Government has approved the ambitious project last week, there is no hurdle in starting the university from this academic year. As the construction work is in progress we have planned to run the university from GBU. For the hospital purpose, construction of OT, ICU, ICCU, emergency ward, blood bank and patients’ ward is complete. The hospital will have 500 beds for patients and will be a unique kind of hospital in the entire State,” said an official of Greater Noida Authority.

Greater Noida to soon get an institute modelled on AIIMS
Greater Noida Industrial Development Authority (GNIDA) officials said on Saturday the UP cabinet had approved the Institute of Medical Sciences – a 500-bed hospital-cum-medical education institute – last month and notification for the same will be out by February 20. To begin with, the institute will make available 150 MBBS seats and its first academic session could commence from July this year.
After coming to power, the Samajwadi Party government had in July 2012 approved the proposal to open a medical university in Greater Noida to “boost education facilities and health services across the Gautam Budh Nagar district”.
Deepak Agarwal, CEO of GNIDA, told TOI the medical institute, located on the campus of Gautam Budh University in Greater Noida, is already in place. “Now this facility will be converted into the Institute of Medical Sciences,” Agarwal said. “Currently it is under GNIDA but will be taken over by the medical education department, UP government, and will be run under the Society Act,” he added.
According to the plan, the autonomous institute will have infrastructure and teaching staff at par with any other premier private medical institute in the country, but will be affordable. This will give students a chance to pursue MBBS course irrespective of their economic background, officials said.
The proposed 500-bed hospital will have 150 intensive care unit beds, 300 doctors, 250 nurses, 450 pharmacists and a total of about 1,000 faculty members. “The bylaws are already ready. Other formalities are likely to be completed soon. If all goes as per plan, we could start the first academic session by July this year,” said Dr AK Bhatt, director of the institute.
“We are now awaiting the notification from the state government, which is expected by February 20,” he added.
