Six months ago, Central Railway, along with an organization called 'Magicdil', had started 24X7 'One Rupee Clinics' at 14 stations, to support the commuters in the state of medical emergencies.
With an aim to offer cost-effective medical facilities, these 'One Rupee Clinics' will soon be available at the doorsteps for senior citizens across the city.
Providing diagnostic tests at affordable rates
Dr Rahul Ghula, founder of One Rupee Clinic said, "We are starting free home medical facilities for MRI, CT scan, USG booking for senior citizens which will reduce cost of medical facilities. Through this initiative we are playing midway role between government and private hospitals."
First clinic opened at Ghatkopar railway station on May 10
The drive had begun at five railway stations in the month of May this year; soon one rupee clinic will also be opened at Byculla station.
Within five months of being set up, the 24X7, one rupee clinics at Harbour and Central line railway stations have observed over 25,000 visitors.
In addition, over 200 accidental cases have been handled so far.
