Undue Benefits to Hospitals
It has been brought to our attention that various hospitals (esp in Delhi) have gotten converted from charitable hospitals to private hospitals. This has resulted in the hospitals now having free premium real estate at zero or very little cost. In addition, these hospitals are charging premium rates to patients and not paying income taxes (benefit given to charitable hospitals). Very limited EWS patients are treated as against what they are supposed to.
Per some of the submissions received, in many cases, the running expenses of some of these hospitals are also covered through CGHS empanelment. At the end, both Government and Citizens are being penalized while these hospitals generate solid profits for their promoters.
If you have such cases in your city/state, you are requested to share more details at the earliest.

In many such cases the people running the governments are also directly or indirectly involved and their interests are well taken care of.
It is also no secret that most of the doctors earning huge money do not pay income tax for their entire income but do not find any difficulties in getting their income tax returns cleared. more
