Re: [IAC#RG] Fleecing Hospitals and doctors

Respected Sir, Shri Venktaraman ji,

Very well said and moved the proposition you have made, Sire.
My family and i are with you, all the way.
Our great tragedy in independent India is, the weak and poor are left in the lurch, all the way. While the meek. -- tribals or the so-named Dalits are left to fend for themselves, and they end up at the doors of the unqualified ones!
Yes, that too is happening in our Bharat ; NO one cares, each one is for his/her own, sadly.

With that background, the Standing (or sitting) Committees are more concerned with their own allowances and per diems of the ones we elect to the two Houses we run (and RUN they not i must add), in our land !

i can say all that because one sees it here all the time. (We provide our part time staff at home and the full time driver whatever we can to support them and their children, in their health care.)

India' budgetary allocations-- at State or Central levels are indeed a "joke" --
just as it goes in the areas of education or SANITATION -- the major ruinous cause for half our illnesses among the poor or the RICH.

No one will, no one does listen, ever.    

The so called Civil Hospitals under the State ( i live in Gurgaon) are under staffed, their good staff does whatever they can with hardly any medicines available for the harried lot that comes to them in hundreds and thousands!

It is sad  that many private hospitals , clinics and doctors have become the den of corruption.  Clinics & doctors  insist on cash payment of fees and do not give receipts. They have no norms in charging fees and have become an exploitative class. Almost all of them accumulate huge black money and evade taxes.

Obviously, central government and income tax department know that  almost all doctors do not pay taxes properly but governments do not care to question them. Hospitals , clinics and doctors very rarely receive tax violation notice and they are rarely raided by income tax department.

 The poor people are the worst sufferers. With most government hospitals having  poor standards and many government doctors are indifferent and private hospitals and doctors fleecing the patients, people from lower income group face desperate conditions when  they fall ill.

Government has the responsibility to discipline the hospitals and doctors and insist on norms for demanding fees. Hospitals, clinics and doctors should be directed to accept fees beyond Rs. 1000  only by cheque and they should give receipt for any fees received above Rs. 50

Time has come for people to protest effectively against the fleecing hospitals. Clinics and doctors.
