camp here today which benefited more than 100 needy people. I also express my deepest
gratitude to CTMA for donating the eye-care equipment, I am glad that besides cable
business they are also active in social welfare initiatives. I have also formally inaugurated

also engaged in helping the poor. I wish them all the best and my support in furthering
such initiatives in the future,” said Mr Sujit Bose.

afford the cost of eye care and surgery. The free eye camp is a small gesture on part of
CTMA to reach out to the poor with latest eye care. We are thankful to surgeon Dr

Eye Operation camp a huge success. Being a part of an initiative to help our poor brothers
and sisters get their proper eyesight back is a very humbling experience that makes us all
very proud. CTMA will continue to carry out such social welfare activities in the future,”
