32 Delhi hospitals to give concessions to NE people
In a first of its kind, top 32 Delhi hospitals will give concession on medical treatment to people from North East States working in unorganised private companies, students, lawyers and media personnel in the city. “It is the first time such concession is given to NE people in India, in view of their many helpless situation while eking out a living in cities,” IGP Robin Hibu, Nodal Officer for North East People, Delhi, said in a statement. The step is an innovative initiative of the Reach Out Initiatives to NE people headed by Hibu, who has made a great effort towards its fruition.
The hospitals include Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Apollo hospital, Fortis, Max hospitals, Medanta, Escort Heart and Research Centre, and Holy Family Hospital. “All 32 hospitals have sent their approval letters. They have also appointed Nodal officers whom people can contact 24×7 for concession,” Hibu said, adding, “The hospitals have agreed to give concessions ranging from 15 to 30 per cent for medical treatment for the people”.
Over 11 lakh people from North East are either working or studying in Delhi and the NCR, and many of them, being from poor background, struggle to meet medical emergencies.
