Bhubaneswar, Mar 15: Union Petroleum Minister Dharmendra Pradhan praised Dr Shankar Ramchandani, who has opened a “One Rupee” clinic to provide treatment to the poor and underprivileged people in Sambalpur district.
“Dr. Shankar of VIMSAR, Burla, deserves every bit of appreciation for his noble deeds for humanity. Treating the poor beyond duty hours through his ₹1 clinic, he is a perfect example of how individual efforts make a difference and contribute to positive change in society,” Pradhan said on Twitter.
Dr Ramchandani is an assistant professor in the department of medicine at Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR) in Burla. He has opened the clinic in Burla town where patients have to pay just one Rupee for treatment.
The one Rupee fee clinic is part of his long standing desire to provide free treatment to the poor and underprivileged beyond duty hour.
