CNCI was facing a heavy load of cancer patients and a need for expansion was being felt for sometime. This need will be fulfilled through the second campus."

The second campus of CNCI has been built at a cost of over Rs 530 crore, out of which around Rs 400 crore have been provided by the Union government and rest by the West Bengal government, in the ratio of 75:25. The campus is a 460-bedded comprehensive cancer centre unit with cutting edge infrastructure for cancer diagnosis, staging, treatment and care.

The campus is equipped with modern facilities like Nuclear Medicine (PET), 3.0 Tesla MRI, 128 slice CT scanner, Radionuclide therapy unit, endoscopy suite, modern brachytherapy units etc.

"The campus will also work as an advanced cancer research facility and will provide comprehensive care to cancer patients, especially those from Eastern and Northeastern parts of the country," the PMO said.
