The Committee recommended the setting up of six Postgraduate Medical Institutions in the country one each at Kolkata, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, Lucknow and Chandigarh to meet the increasing demand of teachers for the rapidly expanding medical colleges, speciality services for hospitals and need of the armed forces. The Postgraduate Institute of Medical Education & Research was conceived and planned in 1960 to create in Chandigarh. The Institute was established in 1962 under the erstwhile State of Punjab. It was declared as Institute of national importance by an Act of Parliament (Act 51 of 1966) with effect from April 1967.
