BEL-Ghaziabad Unit had recently signed an MoU with AIIMS Delhi for the construction of a patients' waiting lounge for needy patients and their attendants at an approximate cost of Rs 10 Crore.

Due to the huge footfall at AIIMS Delhi, a patient waiting lounge had become the need of the hour. The proposed lounge would be built by BEL-Ghaziabad and maintained by AIIMS Delhi. The waiting lounge with a seating capacity of 1,000 would be constructed with pre-fabricated panels and equipped with required amenities and furnishings. Beneficiaries of the facility would comprise patients coming from different parts of India, seeking consultation and treatment for various medical complexities.
