New Delhi: To prioritize the welfare and safety of its students and resident doctors, AIIMS Delhi will float an expression of interest by July 31 to explore the option of leasing fully furnished hostel accommodations nearer to the premier institute or at a reasonable distance with good connectivity by Delhi Metro. "All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, recognizes the challenges faced by its undergraduate, postgraduate PhD students, resident doctors in finding suitable accommodation while awaiting official hostel allotments," the hospital said in a statement. Particularly, female students/resident doctors encounter difficulties, often commuting during odd hours using their own transportation or relying on public transport facilities and finding safe secure accommodation, it said.
