Sambalpur: A doctor in Odisha’s Sambalpur district surfaced as an example for many with his humanitarian deed as he opened a ‘One Rupee’ clinic to provide treatment to the poor and underprivileged people.
Shankar Ramchandani, an assistant professor in the department of medicine at Veer Surendra Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research (VIMSAR), Burla opened the clinic in Burla town.
Ramchandani said that the one Rupee fee clinic is part of his long-standing desire to provide free treatment to the poor and underprivileged beyond duty hour.
Reportedly, patients have to pay just one Rupee for treatment.
Ramchandani had also drawn the attention of all and received widespread appreciation when he attended a COVID-19 patient beyond his duty hour and also carried the patient to VIMSAR in his car amid the scourge of novel coronavirus in October last year.
