NAVI MUMBAI: Central Railway (CR) is looking at retendering or extending the three-year contracts with financially hit service providers that will run the emergency medical room (EMR) at 10 stations. This will help them avail the five-year food and drug administration (FDA) licence to operate chemist shops at the premises, as a revenue earning model.
Currently, seven stations—Dadar, Wadala, Panvel, Mulund, Thane, Kalyan and Dombivili—have EMR facilities.
Service providers at Vashi, Diva and Karjat stations have also entered a three -year agreement with CR but the EMRs are not yet functional at the
last three stations.
Sources pointed out that the two new tenders for Kurla and Ghatkopar to be floated on Thursday has the five-year provision. The service providers at Wadala and Dadar where the EMR started this year have also complained about the financial crunch.
Panvel station that started its EMR in October last year has not been functional of late, according to railway sources. Reportedly, station manager D K Gupta has also written to the concerned authorities, divisional railway manager and chief medical supervisor.
The EMR requires the service provider to provide free medical aid to railway commuters in case of accident or any sudden health problem. If the patient opts to continue the healthcare service at the hospital that runs the particular EMR, the hospital then makes money.
