Kushtarog Niwaran Samiti at Shantivan, eight kilometers from Panvel railway station, is a government granted organization for the rehabilitation of leprosy affected in Panvel. Over the sixty years of working in the field, the organization has improved its reach to rural areas of the district. Due to its efforts, percentage of leprosy patients has fallen drastically over the years. The organization is now running an OPD near to ST bus stand in Old Panvel.

About 15 patients are regularly visiting the OPD for diagnosis and treatments. These patients are found socially and economically backward people. Most of the patients are tribal’s or from rural areas of the district. Council has decided to provide 1000 rupees for medicinal needs of leprosy patients every month.

Charusheela Gharat, chairperson of Panvel Municipal council, said “the council is committed to helping and support people who stay social backward.
