Santa said successful implementation of such a super specialist ward for burns in RIMS is a great boon for all, especially the people of Manipur.

As most of the buildings are outdated, the institute is planning to construct various new buildings of different wards, he said, while informing that the institute is already in the process to establish new buildings for the critical care centre and casualty block apart from the doctor's hostels.

Regarding the burn unit which was inaugurated on Saturday, he informed that a new floor will be added soon as it is the face of the RIMS.
