At the Gurudwara Bangla Sahib complex in New Delhi, the Delhi Sikh Gurudwara Management Committee (DSGMC) launched "India's biggest" kidney dialysis facility.

The DSGMC shared in a statement that the Guru Harkishan Institute of Medical Sciences and Research Kidney Dialysis Hospital shall offer a dialysis facility to 101 patients simultaneously and it can look after 500 patients on a daily basis. 

"All services are being provided totally free in this most technically advanced hospital. There is no billing or payment counter. The DSGMC will take services from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) from corporate houses and from those who are willing to contribute for such initiatives and various government schemes," DSGMC president Manjinder Singh Sirsa said.

The capacity will soon be increased to 1,000 beds from the current 101 beds, he added.

Speaking on the occasion, farmer leader Rakesh Tikait lauded the Sikh community for starting a project that will offer free services to everyone.

"We were seeing this building for the last 20 years but were surprised that the Sikh community is known for completing its projects but this project lingered on. We were very happy to learn yesterday that a unique hospital where there will be no cash counter will launch services. Such work can be done only by the Sikh community," Tikait said.
