Chandigarh,28.10.16-Two state-of-art physiotherapy centres were inaugurated by Mayor Arun Sood on Wednesday, 28 October 2016 – one each in the dispensaries located in Sectors 20 and 38.

Fully funded and managed by Chandigarh Senior Citizens’ Association (CSCA) under Public Private Partnership Initiative, the services of the centres will be available to patients visiting the dispensaries totally free of cost.

Residents of both the Sectors who attended the inauguration in large numbers were happy that this well needed facility would be available virtually at their doorstep and that, too, without a big hole in their pocket.

President IP Puri of CSCA said that the Association was committed to do its bit to give back to society all it had done for them. The Association, he said, was constantly on the lookout for avenues of service to deprived and challenged sections of society. These two physiotherapy centres are in addition to the existing six, running in different parts of the Tricity.

Mayor Arun Sood complimented the Association for its innovative programmes and thanked them for their Diwali gift to citizens of Chandigarh. He would, he said, work with CSCA to identify other programmes.
