It’s noteworthy that after the inauguration of Rajkot International Airport, Prime Minister Narendra Modi is visiting Rajkot for the first time.

Prior to the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, the Central Government is actively pushing for major projects in Gujarat and Saurashtra. Towards the end of February, the Prime Minister is expected to inaugurate his two dream projects. This includes the inauguration of the Dwarka Signature Bridge on February 24th, which has been constructed at a cost exceeding 978 crores, and the commencement of 250-bed IPD services at Rajkot AIIMS on February 25th. Additionally, the inauguration of Atal Sarovar on the new Ring Road in Rajkot and the hospital for people are planned thereafter.

Four operation theaters are also being prepared.

Currently, on the Rajkot-Jamnagar road, near Parapipaliya village, in a vast area of ​​around 200 acres, construction work of AIIMS is progressing rapidly with a budget exceeding 1200 crores. For the past two years, Rajkot AIIMS has been operational with a 50-bed facility for OPD services, and now, after February 25th, Rajkot AIIMS will also start IPD services with a 250-bed multi-specialty facility. Along with that, four operation theaters are also being set up, which will be utilized for surgeries in case of emergencies or other medical needs, ensuring prompt and proper healthcare services.

Spread across 2.93 lakh square meters, Atal Sarovar is being developed.

As part of the Rajkot Smart City project, the construction of Nyari Reservoir and Atal Sarovar is underway. Rajkot city has been included in the list of 100 smart cities in the country. Under this initiative, construction work for Nyari Reservoir and Atal Sarovar is progressing, including the development of a new 150-foot ring road.
