The All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi has announced its closure until 2:30 pm on January 22, in light of the ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony for the Ram temple in Ayodhya. The premier medical institute issued a circular on Saturday, stating that the decision was in accordance with the Government of India’s declaration of a half-day closing on January 22, 2024.

The circular, referencing the official memorandum dated January 18, 2024 (F.No. 12/7/2023- JCA, DoPT), informed AIIMS employees about the half-day closure. The reason cited was the nationwide celebration of the Ram Lalla Pran Pratishtha ceremony in Ayodhya. The institute will remain closed until 2:30 pm on the specified date.

The circular also highlighted that AIIMS New Delhi is currently on high alert until February 21, 2024, as per the reference (No. F.9/VVIP/2024-Estt(H), DGHS, Emergency Medical Relief) dated February 9, 2024. Despite the half-day closure, the institute assured that all critical clinical services would remain functional during this period.

In accordance with the government’s directive and as a mark of respect for the significant religious event, AIIMS New Delhi is taking necessary steps to adjust its operational hours. However, the commitment to providing essential medical services remains a top priority, as reflected in the continuation of critical clinical services despite the temporary closure.

This announcement serves as a measure to accommodate the cultural and religious observances associated with the Ram temple ‘pran pratishtha’ ceremony while ensuring that the medical needs of the community continue to be met. The circular concludes by urging all heads of departments and branch officers to communicate this information to their respective staff members.
