Charitable  Contributions

The Murari Lal Public Charitable Trust (Registered) is a philanthropic organization that was conceived by the late Dr. Murari Lal Bhargava, the founder of the ASCO Group of Companies. Established in 1972 with an initial contribution of ₹2000, the trust’s primary mission is to provide support and assistance to underprivileged individuals in the areas of education and healthcare.

Funding for these charitable activities is generated through contributions from both family members and affiliated companies. One of the trust’s notable initiatives is the operation of a homeopathic charitable dispensary in Farrukhabad, Uttar Pradesh – which has been providing free medical assistance to 40+ individuals daily under the care of a qualified doctor since 1995.

Alongside its local efforts, the trust has consistently contributed to the Prime Minister’s Relief Fund on various occasions. Notably, it spearheaded the establishment of the Dr. Murari Lal Bhargava Operation Theater at the Masonic Fraternity of New Delhi, located at Janpath. This facility offers accessible eye care services to the public at nominal rates, reflecting the trust’s dedication to community well-being.

Through our unwavering dedication and continuous efforts, we are committed to giving back to the society that has played a significant role in shaping who we are today.
