The trophy, instituted in 1989, is given to the best functioning hospital among the Command Hospitals of the Indian Army and equivalent status hospitals of Navy and Air Force.

Stressing that no relief work could be carried out effectively without the participation of Armed Forces Medical Services, Mukherjee commended the role of AFMC for its yeomen's service in times of war and peace.

The minister expressed hope that medical services in general and hospitals in particular would continue to strive to deliver best health care to its clientele.
