DDA and Land & Development Office of Government of India allots lands on concessional rates to trusts and registered societies to establish hospitals and other healthcare facilities to provide free medical treatments to poor or the people below poverty line. Hospitals are supposed to provide specific percentage of beds to the poor people free of cost.
But leading private hospitals such as Pushpawati Singhania Research, Dharamshila Cancer Hospital, Shanti Mukand Hospital, Max Super Specialty Hospital (Saket) and Fortis Escorts Heart Institute have breached the code of conduct and ignored the guidelines resulting in 600 crore fines because these hospitals have been using the beds and earning money. These hospitals don’t allow free treatment to poor people; otherwise their conditions are so strict and hard that poor people are unable to follow. Though free treatment is the main condition for land allotment.
