Dr. Purvez Grant Appointed Advisor To NCM

Pune-based Dr. Purvez K. Grant, Managing Trustee of Ruby Hall Clinic, has been appointed as Advisor to the National Commission for Minorities (NCM), Govt. of India. Known for his outstanding medical expertise, philanthropic endeavours and dedication to community service, Dr. Grant was considered the apt choice for this prestigious position. He was felicitated on this appointment at the Ruby Hall Clinic by Ali Daruwala – Advisor for National Commission for Minorities and Spokesperson, BJP.

As National Advisor, Dr. Purvez Grant aims to empower and uplift minority communities by focusing on three key areas – Community Development, Healthcare Advancements and Promoting Pune as a thriving hub for medical tourism. Driven by a deep commitment to inclusivity and equal opportunities, Dr. Grant’s appointment aligns perfectly with the hospital’s mission of creating a prosperous, healthy and harmonious society.

“I’m deeply honoured to have been entrusted with the responsibility of serving as the National Advisor for the Minority Commission of India. I firmly believe that every individual, regardless of their background, deserves equal opportunities to succeed and thrive. My primary focus will be on addressing the unique challenges faced by minority communities (Jains, Sikhs, Parsis and Muslims) and ensuring their holistic development… I am committed to promoting educational opportunities, skill development programs, and entrepreneurship initiatives that will empower individuals from minority backgrounds,” said Dr. Purvez Grant, on the occasion.

Looking to realise Pune city’s dynamic potential, Dr. Grant emphasised his plans to leverage its strengths for the benefit of both – minority communities and the city itself. “Pune is a vibrant city with a rich cultural heritage and immense talent pool. By harnessing this potential, we can create opportunities for economic growth and foster an environment that attracts investments. My aim is to ensure beautification of the city, make it a hawker-free zone, remove potholes and illegal hoardings while positioning Pune as a global destination for medical tourism. We can utilise the world-class healthcare infrastructure Ruby Hall Clinic offers such as the inclusion of the Cyberknife for cancer patients and leverage partnerships to provide quality healthcare services to both domestic and international patients.”

Dr. Grant also praised the PM Modi for his efforts in advancing the welfare of minority communities and his initiatives to promote inclusive growth, sharing how Ruby Hall Clinic has extended itself greatly in their outreach programme – be it undertaking surgeries for paediatric cardiac patients free of cost or annually spending over 20 crores on charity for patients from the lower economic strata. “I am confident that, with the government’s support, we can bring about transformative change and create a society that embraces diversity and empowers all its citizens,” he concluded.

Dr. Grant’s appointment as Advisor to NCM marks an important milestone in the nation’s pursuit of inclusivity and equality. With his leadership, expertise, and dedication to community welfare, we look forward to a brighter future for minority communities and a prosperous nation.
