Update: April 16, 2005

FlowersThis outpatient village dispensary at Ramkrishna Nagar was attended by two Physicians, Dr. K. K. Das and Dr. A. N. Bhattacharyya, a famous orthopedics from New Delhi. A number of patients visited the dispensary that day and consulted with the doctors.

Two significant improvements in the Dispensary were noticed on April 16. Newly installed electrical system, and a working Telephone. Thanks to Mr. Prasanta Choudhury of Karimganj for the complete electrical system including supplies and for complete painting of the interior and exterior of the building en-gratis as his contribution to the Dispensary. This is a sheer blessing to the villagers. When asked over phone as to what he would like in return, he replied "just love" and nothing else. Fortunately, there is plenty of that in this little village. The First Outpatient Village Dispensary built by DCMC Foundation in Ramkrishna Nagar (RK Nagar) opened its door to the Patients on September 14, 2004. Under the Supervision of Dr. K. K. Das the dispensary became fully functional now with plenty of water supply and sanitary facilities. "The number of patients are increasing everyday ..." according to Mr. Vivekananda Dutta, Principal Administrator of the facility.

  7. Summary information pertaining to the plans and objectives of the foundation are furnished below:

    In a trip to India, and Bangladesh (Nov 24, 1999-Jan 12, 2000), Mr. Subijoy Dutta of DCMC Foundation visited his native village, Ramkrishnanagar, in Cachar, Assam, India along with Dr. K. K. (Lakhsman) Das from Silchar.

    Late Surja Kumar Dutta, grandfather of Subijoy Dutta, established their first settlement in India back in early 1940s at the two-acre hillock, which is the proposed permanent site for the DCMC Dispensary. This 2-acre plot is not accessible by vehicle. It is about half a mile away from the nearest access road. Temporarily, the DCMC Dispensary will be located at a nearby hillock, which is easily accessible by vehicle. During this visit a new venture was undertaken to build a Dispensary/Clinic there. After the building construction and necessary arrangements for a telephone connection is completed at this dispensary site, Dr. K.K. Das will make arrangements to man the dispensary with paramedics and nurses. Dr. Das is also planning to pay occasional visits to this satellite facility.

    The primary objectives behind the DCMC Foundation is to provide medical assistance to the poor and needy people, mostly in rural India. DCMC plans to expand services to the rural areas of the neighboring countries, such as Bangladesh, and Nepal in future.

    A tax-exempt/charitable foundation has been formed in Kolkata, by the name of Dutta Charitable Medical centre (DCMC) Foundation.
