Cuttack, Jan 12: Union Petroleum and Natural Gas and Steel Minister Dharmendra Pradhan inaugurated a 4-storey ‘Arogya Bhawan’ (Patinet Aid Centre) of the Utkala Bipanna Sahayata Samiti at Olatpur under Kantapada block in Cuttack district on Tuesday.
The Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) has spent Rs 2.32 crore for the project. Built under the CSR Initiative of ONGC Limited, this facility will provide free accommodation, food and other services to patients and their assistants. It will be very beneficial for poor patients.
For health benefits, patients coming from far away drawer areas of Odisha and patients coming from neighbouring States like West Bengal and Jharkhand will also get 24*7 different facilities here.
Construction of this new building will help UBSS meet the growing demand of affordable housing for patients treatment and health benefits with the mantra of 'Nar Seva Hi Narayan Seva'.
“I congratulate ONGC Limited for rapidly completing this project dedicated to social welfare. It is a great pleasure for me that this facility is being dedicated to the people on the auspicious occasion of Swami Vivekananda Ji Jayanti today,” said Pradhan.
He added, “Our government and PSU companies are committed to society and public welfare and are continuously working to bring prosperity and happiness in people's lives.”
