The Noble Concept

The vision of providing quality healthcare for all, made Dr Rahul Ghule conceptualise this noble cause. The one-rupee clinic was established in 2017, in a Joint Collaboration with the Government of India and Ministry of Railways, and was started at numerous local train stations in Mumbai metropolitan region.

It not only provides a health checkup facility to the locals and commuters but also works as an emergency unit in case of rail accidents. Dr Rahul Ghule had kept a token charge of rupee one as a consultation fee along with very nominal rates of diagnostic tests.

The One-rupee clinic offers high quality preventive, affordable, and curative health services like:

– Consultation with Qualified doctors 
– One-day admission facility
– A 24*7 Pharmacy-MagiCDil
– Diagnostic centre providing all type of blood tests, sonography, and scans at affordable charges.
– Medical counselling
– Awareness Camp and Speciality clinics for BP, diabetes, Heart & Cancer.

How it all started

Dr Rahul Ghule got the inspirational idea of working for poor patients’ way back in 2014 while he was working as a medical officer at JJ hospital. He opened a charitable clinic in a slum in Colaba. He wanted to expand his services. Unfortunately, one day his mother met with a road accident and due to unavailability of timely medical treatment she was left paralysed. This incident made him realize the need to set up clinics at the most vulnerable place of MUMBAI; the railway stations. And when the government planned to start medical facilities at railway stations, he wasted no time to grab the opportunity. He started with around eight such clinics. Presently, there are more than 20 such affordable medical facilities, operative in and around MMR. A humble Dr Rahul Ghule is a dedicated MD of the MagicDIL Health that runs the One-rupee clinic. 

Working as Covid warriors:

In this time of crisis, Dr Rahul Ghule and his qualified team of One-rupee clinics, comprising of 750 medical staffs are tirelessly managing around ten Covid care centres in and around Mumbai. These care centres are set up by local civic bodies. Dr Rahul Ghule and Magicdil health are also managing a 165 bedded Covid hospital at Mira road. Approximately they are managing over 2500 Covid patients and that’s a commendable task. Dr Rahul Ghule and his organisation not only takes proper care of their patients but they ensure that their team members are duly awarded for their duty. Additionally, he sees to it that all his One-rupee clinic doctors, nurses and even ward boys are paid handsomely and are duly insured. Moreover, the institution looks after their free accommodation and food for all their staff. This is the reason why these Covid warriors are working so efficiently under such tremendous pressure.
