First Bulk Order To KVIC From Govt. Hospital

After the government made it mandatory for 23 of its hospitals to purchase Khadi products only, the Lady Hardinge Medical College (LHMC) has placed an order worth Rs. 33 lakh for the same. The LHMC has sought the delivery of products by May 18.

The lists of products include floor dusters, curtains, operation theatre kurtas for both doctors and patients and dead body sheets.

“Other hospitals have also approached the Khadi and Village Industries Commission (KVIC) for the Khadi products,” KVIC Chairperson V.K. Saxena said while confirming the order, adding, “Yes, the purchase order by LHMC is just the beginning. After the government’s directive, hospitals are approaching KVIC for the samples and we are expecting the orders soon.”

The 45 Khadi products, approved by the health ministry, include bed sheets, abdomen sheets, dressing towels, surgeon gowns, surgical patient gowns, kurta pyjamas, doctor’s coats, soaps, hand sanitisers to Khadi phenyl and herbal shampoo.
