Ever heard of the name of ‘One Rupee Clinic’? Well, you’re about to! On Monday night (Oct 9), a doctor of One Rupee Clinic and a woman RPF officer delivered the baby girl of a 26-year-old woman on platform number 3 in Mumbai’s Dadar railway station.

Thanks to a doctor from the ‘One Rupee Clinic’, the delivery went without a hitch.

For the women officials of Railway Police Force who assisted the doctor, the day went beyond the call of duty.

When contacted, Dr Rahul Ghule, founder of the One Rupee Clinics, said the delivery took place at 10:17 pm and was conducted by Dr Prajwalit with the help of women railway cops.

When Salma Shaikh went into labour at the station, locals rushed to railway officers for help, Indian Express reported.

“This is the second such delivery (aided by One Rupee Clinic) this year. The first happened at Ghatkopar station,” said Ghule.

Soon after the delivery, the mother and newborn baby were taken to the nearby KEM hospital for further treatment.  It was later confirmed by the officials that both the baby and mother are in stable condition.

For those of you aren’t aware of One Rupee Clinics, they are now on several railway stations across Mumbai. They offer timely help for any emergencies.
