We thank our Hon'ble Prime Minister Shri. Narendra Modi for gracing this occasion. We would like to dedicate this facility to the needy patients in our country."
Prof. Aarti Vij, Chairperson - Media & Protocol, AIIMS, New Delhi, said," We thank Infosys Foundation for their unwavering support in helping those who need it.
