Appreciating the role of J&K bank, Omar said, “It is a matter of great satisfaction for all of us that J&K Bank shares a good portion of its profits on various CSR activities in the state and I am sure people will benefit from this camp.”
The Bank arranged a team of 30 doctors for OPD consultations during the camp. A large number of voluntary para-medical staff also assisted the doctors.
Expressing the desire to have a long-term association with the bank, Dr Trehan said, “Medanta is considering a partnership with J&K Bank to workout possibilities and schemes for providing concessional treatment for patients from economically weaker sections of society in the state.”

Welcoming the chief guest, Dr. Trehan and his team of doctors from Medanta and Jammu as well, bank’s director R K Gupta informed the gathering that the bank has always remained at forefront of substantial CSR initiatives for the benefit of people of the state.
