Vijayanagar Institute of Medical Sciences - VIMS

The story of the starting of Medical College, Bellary is the saga of struggle and sacrifice of citizens of Bellary. Following its merger with erstwhile Mysore State in 1953, Bellary become a mere District Headquarter. In the absence of a medical college in the Hyderabad-Karnataka region or old Madras region, there was a great demand and pressure on the Government for starting a new Medical College in this region. Action committees were formed at difference places like Gulbarga, Belgaum, Davanagere, Mangalore and Bellary. A local sponsoring committee was constituted in August 1959 under the leadership of late Sri. H. Linga Reddy, the M.L.A. from Kurugodu constituency, late Sri. Y.Mahabaleswarappa, Sri. Tekur Subramanya,M.P., Sri.M.Y.Ghorpade, MLA, Sandur, Allum Karibasappa, M.L.A., Dr. Y.P. Vittal eminent E.N.T. Surgeon and others became active in Bellary. The citizens of Bellary whole-heartedly contributed Rs. 10.00 lakhs to the corpus fund not deterred by the staff competition from other action committees, the people of Bellary backed by local organisations, politicians staged a relentless “Battle Royale” through bandh’s, agitations, processions for getting a new Medical College at Bellary. Then a technical committee appointed by the Government surveyed the various places and submitted its report to the Government, recommending Bellary as the ideal place for starting a new Medical College. Sri.B.D.Jatti, the then Chief Minister accepted its views and the state cabinet ratified and gave its approval for locating the Medical College at Bellary and was included in the Third Five Year Plan.
