She was supposed to return home "soon" as an Aiims expert team has confirmed that she has completely recovered after over two months of hospitalisation.
She was hospitalised on 22 September after she complained of fever and dehydration. The hospital, which had been issuing bulletins on her health status, has said she was being treated for infection.
Apollo Hospitals chairman Dr C Prathap Reddy had recently said that Jayalalithaa was in good health and was speaking using a valve attached to the tracheotomy tube.
