KARIMNAGAR, MARCH 01, 2024: Rajanna-Sircilla District Forest Officer Ch Balamani has formally inaugurated the latest equipment of A scan facility at Lions club of Karimnagar Dr Bhaskar Madekar charitable eye hospital in Rekurthi of Karimnagar town on Friday.

Speaking after inaugurating A scan facilities, she said that the forest department would provide all assistance for taking up massive plantation on the hospital premises.
