The Chandranna Sanchara Chikitsa initiative was started in order to provide medical treatment to the people living in remote areas and interior villages which are far away from PHC’s. The State government entrusted the management of 104 health services to Piramal Swasthya Medical Research Institute.In all district headquarters, the employees of Chandranna Sanchara Chikitsa observed Dharma Porata Deeksha on Thursday.

The employees are going to continue their strike, as neither the government officials nor the management has initiated talks to resolve their issues. The employees are stating that they would intensify the protests further if the government fails to fulfil their demands.
