Solan, August 24

To facilitate patients going to Indira Gandhi Medical College (IGMC), Shimla, a new HRTC bus route was started from Solan by Health and Welfare Minister Dr Rajiv Saizal in Solan today.

The minister said, "The service will facilitate the residents going for treatment to the IGMC, Shimla, from Solan."

The bus will take off from the old bus stand at 7:20 am and return from Shimla at 4:40 pm.

The locals had been demanding the special bus service as the patients had to first board a bus from Solan to Shimla till the inter-state bus terminus and then take two connecting local buses to reach the IGMC.

It was posing inconvenience to the patients, who had to waste time first going to the ISBT, which was located far away.

Since the IGMC is the nearest specialty healthcare institute, a large number of patients visit it on a daily basis.

The state government had failed to set up a new hospital building at Solan despite making announcement in the first year of its tenure in 2018. With the limited space in the existing building, several central schemes to improve healthcare failed to be initiated in Solan.
