Institute will also try for AIIMS status
The trauma centre of the SSL hospital at Banaras Hindu University will soon have a helipad and helicopter services to meet exigencies. Apart from this air-ambulance that will be available in the premises, the varsity will also improve its facilities so as to obtain an AIIMS status for the SSL Hospital.

This was stated by BHU vice-chancellor Lalji Singh, while addressing the media. He also talked about events from his own life while he was BHU student himself. He said it was a great opportunity to serve his own university as a vice-chancellor.
Singh reiterated his commitment for uplift of facilities at SSL Hospital. He said he visited the trauma centre on October 29 to review and expedite the work. The V-C informed that apart from the helicopter services, BHU was also working to improve its facilities and obtain AIIMS status.
