People support Rotary Club in various service activities of Dharmanagar. So Dharmanagar residents have a right to this club. In 2022-2023 their session started by celebrating Doctor’s Day and then this club continues to do one service work after another. The members of this club came to the people with food items and sanitizers when everyone was under house isolation during the COVID situation.

This club has been working in Dakshin Ganganagar village panchayat by selecting it as ideal village after seeing the poor social and economic condition of the people.

At present, a review by the health department across the state has shown that Ganganagar has the highest number of TB cases.

Therefore, the Border Security Force has approached the State Health Department and said that the Rotary Club will start working. Rotary Club International is working to eradicate polio around the world in partnership with WHO.

Taking them as role models, Rotaract club members continue to do social service work. They are working in various schools especially in the adult education and in Dharmanagar Government University. The number of polio cases in the world is almost non-existent, with only a few in Pakistan and Afghanistan combined.
