On this occasion, CM Dhami also inaugurated 40 True Net machines that will be made available in all the blocks of the state under CSR courtesy of Indian Oil Corporation Limited. These machines will help in the investigation of TB, Kovid, and other diseases. These machines will be functional in 40 remote places of the state, the statement added.

An MoU was also signed for cooperation in the health sector between Director General Health and IOCL, Yes Bank, and JK Tire in the presence of CM Dhami. In the meeting, the Chief Minister appreciated the Health Department, Yes Bank, IOCL, and JK Tire for their initiative in Health ATM and Tour Net machines. He said that these facilities would not only save time for the common man but also save money. Health awareness would increase among people.

Through these health ATMs, people will be able to take better care of their health by checking themselves from time to time. The local people and lakhs of tourists coming every year will benefit from these facilities. The Chief Minister appealed to private organizations and companies across the country to help in the field of health, education, and cleanliness under Corporate Social Responsibility.

CM Dhami also appealed to IOCL to contribute especially in the field of employment generation in the state. He added that it is a matter of good luck and pride to serve in Devbhoomi Uttarakhand. Those who are getting the opportunity to serve here are fortunate. He appealed to private companies that because Uttarakhand is a small state, companies can establish a model in Uttarakhand by giving their help in the field of education, health, and cleanliness.
