Rajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research CentreRajiv Gandhi Cancer Institute and Research Centre is a visionary project of Indraprastha Cancer Society and Research Centre, a not-for-profit public society, aimed at providing the best of cancer care to those who need it. The premier institute was inaugurated by the then President of India, Dr. Shankar Dayal Sharma in 1996.

RGCI & RC is responsive to the needs of patients and their families and as a part of an ongoing modernization program we are continually upgrading our services and equipment.
