The first batch of 10 EKG machines was delivered to Padmanab Kamath, Cardiologist and Managing Director of the CAD Foundation Trust, by Mahabaleshwara MS, Managing Director and CEO of Karnataka Bank, in Mangaluru on Saturday.

Speaking on the occasion, Mahabaleshwara said that the vast majority of the population living below the poverty line depend on primary health centers for medical treatment, rehabilitation and palliative care.
