A WELFARE SOCIETY was created at institutional level to provide money for poor, destitute or people below poverty line or any body who could not afford his treatment. This purchases the drugs directly from pharmaceutical companies and sells to the patients from shops opened in many departments at atleast 26% less prices than MRP. This has created better sitting place for patients in OPDs, Television with channels to entertain during waiting and also relay health related programs in my OPD days.
Was created to provide suitable and honorable place for seating patients' attendants waiting during the surgery of their wards in New Surgical Block. This also had a Television with channels, facility for drinkable water, air cooling and an attached toilet.
