He is admitted at Apollo, Chennai for Chemotherapy. The cost incurred so far has been met by with ₹ 3 Lakhs insurance and a special allocation of ₹ 5 Lakhs, both assisted by IIT-Madras.

₹ 50 Lakh is further required for his treatment that includes Bone Marrow Transplantation, post transplantation treatment and care, out of which ₹ 30 Lakhs is being raised by IIT-Madras fraternity. Thus, we need to assist him with balance ₹ 20 Lakhs. So far around ₹ 10 Lakhs have been collected by close friends, batchmates and Pantnagar & XIMB college alumni.
