Who we are

The Indian Railway Cancer Institute and Research Centre (IRCIRC) was established by the North Eastern Railway (NER) to provide cancer care services to their employees and their families. In 2017, NER on behalf of Indian Railways, Government of India entered into a MoU with Tata Memorial Centre, Mumbai on behalf of Department of Atomic Energy (DAE), Government of India, for the upgradation of cancer care services and facilities at IRCIRC.

Within a span of 6 months the new edifice of the Centre was ready.
