Sri Bangla Sahib Gurudwara of Delhi to conduct MRI scan for Rs 50

Sri Bangla Sahib Gurudwara of New Delhi has announced the opening of a diagnostic facility that will start operating from December 2020.
The facility within the premises comes as an affordable option for people who have been asked to undergo medical tests by their doctors. For at this facility, patients will have to pay Rs 150 for ultrasounds and Rs 50 for a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan. According to Arvinder Singh Soni, chairman of liver transplant at Medanta and Sir HN Reliance Foundation Hospital, this humanitarian initiative intends to help people who do not have the necessary means to pay for expensive tests like MRIs.
A committee of doctors has been formed to identify people who shall be eligible for the concession.
On the other hand, dialysis too shall be conducted in this facility using machines worth Rs 6 crore that have been donated to the hospital. While the underprivileged sections of society shall be able to undergo an MRI scan for Rs 50, the rest of the  people (who are financially able ) shall  have to pay Rs 800 for the same. A committee of doctors has been formed to identify people who shall  be eligible for the concessions.
