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

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
