Sources in the civic body said the centres would provide comprehensive primary healthcare services to the residents of respective areas. Maternal and child healthcare services, free essential drugs and diagnostic facilities will be available at the centres.

The SMC will spend Rs 10 crore to renovate a portion of the stadium. On Thursday, soil testing was carried out near the Focin block (the main block) of the stadium.
