At a time when the concept of eye banking had not come to India but was prevalent in Sri Lanka and countries of the West, Late N. Baksi C.I.E., I.C.S., Bar-at-Law, who was a great visionary, foresaw that in the future there would be increasing awareness regarding eye donation among the masses. He donated 0.7 acres of land and Rs. 5,000/- and registered Bihar Eye Bank Trust, a registered charitable trust, No. 17174 of 1974 of the Indian Trust Act.
He was Founder Secretary of the Trust and was associated with several welfare projects during his career. As a Subdivisional Officer and District Magistrate, he helped to found an Orphanage in Bhabua, a Boy’s School in Japla, Palamu District, a Girls’ School in Arrah, and the G. C. Ghosh Memorial Leper Hospital at Tetulmari, Dhanbad District. He created the Lee Garden for the public in Monghyr. He also endowed the Bhabatarini Maternity Ward in the Doranda Hospital, Ranchi, in memory of his mother.
