Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in Delhi is set to offer India’s “cheapest” diagnostic facility from December, 2020, onwards. The Delhi Sikh Gurdwara Management Committee (DSGMC) said the MRI will cost just Rs 50. The Guru Harkrishan Hospital within the gurdwara premises will start a dialysis centre at the same time. The procedure of the dialysis will cost around Rs 600.

“India’s “cheapest” diagnostic facility to start functioning at Gurdwara Bangla Sahib in December and an MRI here will cost just Rs 50,” DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa said in a tweet.

The machines worth Rs 6 crores, including four for dialysis, have been donated by the devotees. A machine each for ultrasound, MRI and X-Ray have also been donated to the hospital, Sirsa said.

While the MRI scan will cost Rs 800, the poor and needy can get it done for just Rs 50. A committee of doctors will decide who needs it and can’t afford. The MRI costs at least Rs 2,500 in private laboratories.

X-Ray and ultrasound will be done at the Gurudwara hospital for Rs 150.

Sirsa said said the diagnostic services will be the most affordable in the country and will start operating in the first week of December.
