In the year 2016, the aid fund was established in the Lohia Institute. The institute had deposited Rs 2 crore as corpus fund. The needy were helped with the interest earned from it. Under the system, a proposal is sent by the head of the department to the institute administration and after permission, help is provided to the patient, but for the last six months no attention is being paid to the proposals being sent by the departments. Patients have to bear the cost of treatment on their own in case the institute is not benefited from any government scheme. Many a times, after the death of serious patients kept on ventilator, the bodies are given to the family members only after due payment. The fund was specially created to help such patients.

free treatment is over

Earlier there was facility of free treatment in the hospital block of Lohia Sansthan. Patients had to pay a fee only in superspeciality departments. At the same time, now the institute has implemented the fee in the hospital block as well. In such a situation, the facility of free treatment has been completely stopped. Economically weak patients also have to pay charges ranging from investigation, medicine, surgery to beds on admission.
