JORHAT: SK Barua, managing director of Numaligarh Refinery Limited (NRL), inaugurated the first-of-its-kind Oxygen Generation Plant at Jorhat Christian Medical Centre (JCMC).

The inaugural session was held at the JCMC conference hall where dignitaries from the medical centre and NRL spoke on the occasion.
“Earlier, we had to keep waiting to get oxygen cylinders from various sources and during bandhs we had to face problems to give oxygen to serious patients as oxygen cylinders had to be brought Guwahati,” said said Dr Sharma.
SK Barua, the managing director of NRL, lauded the role played by JCMC in providing medical treatment to people of the region. The NRL team, led by SK Barua, paid a visit to the hospice and later the Oxygen Plant Room was inaugurated by SK Barua.
