As part of its 'Tandarust Punjab' mission, Punjab government will provide free-of-cost blood in all its government-run hospitals across the state from January 1.

Brahm Mohindra, Health and Family Welfare Minister, said, "Not only shall be blood provided free of cost, but it will also be ensured that the blood is available round the clock in all the hospitals."
