Record keepers of Limca Book and Guinness Records noted it as the Largest Health Awareness Lesson (single venue) after it ended here late Friday.

Spiritual leader Appasaheb Dharmadhikari, son of the late Nanasaheb Dharmadhikari, from Raigad inaugurated the mega-camp with a call to people to take care of their health to lead a happy life.

He urged the 1,200 doctors, over 5,000 paramedics, and volunteers to counsel the participants and guide them on different health issues.

Braving the morning chill, thousands of patients queued up at 500 registration counters in 16 blocks and received their case papers before proceeding for their check-up.

A large number of ambulances were kept ready.

The camp also provided information about central and state health schemes and insurance options.
