According to reports, a 22-year-old woman delivered a baby with the assistance of a doctor and a nurse of one rupee clinic on a platform in Thane railway station.

In an exemplary initiative taken last year, Central Railway along with ‘Magicdil’ have established 24X7 ‘One Rupee Clinics’ at 14 different stations.

One Rupee Clinics at Mumbai railway stations

A PIL was filed in Bombay HC in March last year by rail activist Samir Zaveri on the issue of lack of prompt medical help in case of accidents on railway tracks, the Bombay High Court ordered the Railways to set up Electronic Medical Records(EMRs) at all stations on the Central and Western Line in a phased manner. Since then the one rupee clinic has helped various people and provided emergency services to the commuters in distress.

In October, last month, a 26-year-old Salma Shaikh, delivered a baby girl at Mumbai’s Dadar station, one rupee clinic made it possible by boarding the train to help the lady. In fact, the daily travellers consider these clinics to be a boon as it can provide immediate treatment in case of an emergency.

These clinics are open 24 hours a day, have three doctors working in eight-hour shifts. “Earlier, in case of an accident or injuries, we had to take the patient to a hospital, which was time-consuming and could impact the patient’s life. But this clinic provides immediate help to passengers. We are able to offer aid within the Golden hour itself, without wasting precious time,” said Dr Aparna Deodhar, deputy station manager, Thane.
