Accordingly to the ministry of finance, those who donate fund to AIIMS will now get 100 percent income tax deduction of donated amount from their taxable income.

AIIMS was recently given a notification certificate by the income tax department.

The institution in a statement said that the notification would not only help to attract more philanthropic funds for the patient care services in the institute but also promote this national institute of excellence in the area of medical education and research in the country with having such a financial support from the philanthropic funds.
