PPE kit price standardization

An INR 362 rupee PPE kit is being charged for at INR 8000 - 15000 by hospitals across the country.

I know BIS doesnt do price standardisation but consumer ministry the parent of BIS needs to pitch in here and drive this consumer issue to pharma or health dept on behalf of the consumers.

Hospitals claiming to use approximately 20 kits/patient/day. Its loot at its peak. No ones speaking. more

Do you think both can work together - It will give a chance to Khejriwal to blame the Center and nothing more, he is not interested in working. Crux of this : Center will do the major work and khejriwal will blame the center more  
Today's newspapers carry headlines on how the Centre and the Delhi government are going to work hand in hand. Decisions taken are enumerated also. Hope is on the horizon. more  
Under DPCO act central govt should fix the MRP of these goods more  
A fter all the experience in Governance about the profiteers , should the Authotrities wait for such Appeals day in day out for each and every item that is used being exploited to hike the charges . THE AUTHORITIES SHOULD NOW AT LEAST COME DOWN HEAVILY ONSUCH PROFITEERS . AS IT IS THE THE CONSUMERS ARE CRESTFALLEN , UNABLE TO EARN THEIR INCOME , BANKS REDUCING THE INTEREST RATES , PRICES OF FOOD FUEL SHOOTING UP . (eg. Rice price / kg has gone up from Rs.58 to 67/).At this juncture some one from the family falls sick that will be the last straw for the family . more  
Dear Sir, The ingredient of blood ie loot by few can not be transformed within a short span. For reforms to be implemented, people's voice and participation must. I am sure the present Govt is able to take hard decisions once it comes to their notice. Also we are in the habit of not caring for others. Otherwise how a hosp can charge Rs 8000-15000/ as a cost of PPE from a patient. But we remain silent as it does not pertain to we. Where is the media? Where are our social workers? It becomes a personal problem for the individual as he is facing the situation. Sir, Let us all make an effort to get such inflated bill and take it to the auth concern or the Govt to black list such looters, if it is proved. Regards more
