The attached letter is sad. Escalating it here so the govt officials and citizens can both see and do something.

If we cant care for docs how will they care for us? more

Thank you, Vinita, for inspiring me to request the Secretary to GoI, Department of Consumer Affairs, to donate Rs.5 crores on behalf of consumers from their personal money lying unclaimed and un-refunded and diverted to The Finance Act of 2015 (Chapter VII) in the name of Senior Citizens' Welfare Fund to Safdarjang Hospital, New Delhi, with due approval of the Central Consumer Protection Council (a representative body of consumers) under Consumer Protection Act.
A copy of the same attached here for information with a request to the participants to please do write their representations on the lines to the Secretary, Consumer Affairs (DOCA). more  
It's the steady availability of PPE and not money that's essential right now. Should be procured thru govt (controlled prices)..
We probably require more of disposable Hazmat suits..I presume some existing and new enterprises are manufacturing them..will be utterly difficult to get the imported ones though..
Hope we won't have to resort to use of single use plastics in case of lack of Hazmat suits.. like what's happening in Europe.. more  
It is consumers' way of participating in the fight against COVID-19 virus that our doctors and nurses facing at the 'front'. more  
Yes, we the citizens (consumers) must do something.
My suggestion here is that the Members of the Consumer Protection Councils at the Centre and the States may jointly pass a resolution to sanction a sum of Rs.5,00,00,000/- (INR 5 crores only) from Senior Citizens Welfare Fund, transferred illegally from the personal money of consumers lying unclaimed and unrefunded in the Finance Act of 2015 (Chapter VII), be passed for specific purpose of purchasing protective equipment and other consumables. This money may be equitably distributed by the Central Consumer Protection Council.
I personally request the Secretary, GoI, DoCA, here to call a meeting of the CCPC and get the Resolution passed accordingly. Thanks more
