Cap on Doctor Consultation Fees in India

This was a subject of discussion a year back or so. Some doctors in Delhi think they are gods and charge 2500 rupees as consultation charges in a country where common an struggles to pay 300 rupees for a doctor.

Can Govt of India Health Ministry and Consumer Affairs ministry please cap doctor consultation charges to something reasonable like 1000 with a 5 year escalation based in inflation.

Please share ur inputs more

Its disgusting to learn how the hospitals and doctors fleece the common people. Indeed, people are helpless to save their dear ones.

It will be very difficult, nay impossible to control the fees. However, this Government at Centre needs to ensure that Govt. Hospitals need to provide quality treatment, even on chargeable basis for those who can afford and free to those who cannot. more  
Doctors consulting fees must be displayed at the entrance of the hospital or near the door of a private doctor. Then it is our choice to consult him/her. The real problem is the investigation and tests prescribed and prescribing costly medicines instead of cheaper ones. more  
Doctors should be asked to display their consultation charges on a board kept at entrance of their consulting room. They should also make it clear whether the charges are per visit for consultation. or more
