The project is to set up a charitable laboratory/diagnostic centre. There are various diagnostic centres in the City to cater to the needs of the population. But the major constraint is the high cost of various diagnostic tests which a large population, particularly the economically weaker section of the society cannot afford the tests at the present rates. There as such, is a dire need of the community for a charitable diagnostic centre providing the tests at minimum rates so as to cover only the sustainability cost of the Diagnostic Centre. To respond to the real community need, the members of the Club, who had been making a community assessment in the area, have identified a place for setting up a Laboratory/Diagnostic Centre. On the basis of assessment, it is anticipated that initially about 100 patients will be benefitted every day. The idea of the Club is to create the facility which can be supported by the community thereafter. The Club has identified a building at a prominent location in Sector 55, Mohali (Sector shared between Mohali and Chandigarh).The Club has identified 'Sri Guru Granth Sahib Sewa Society' (Regd.), Chandigarh which is a registered NGO of dedicated professionals having 65 doctors, more than 100 para-medical staffs. They are already running three hospitals and 17 ambulances in Chandigarh. The Society agrees to run the center and provide the facility of diagnostics free of cost to the poor and needy and at no profit no loss basis to the general public.

Additional Contribution (not matched by The Rotary Foundation)
Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
