rs of private medical centres.
When asked about the rate list has not been displayed by various nursing homes and private clinics, he replied they are following it.
Contradictory the claims of the Director, officials sources said that most of clinics and nursing home owners having nexus with the officials of the same department so that they have showed thumbs to rules and regulations of the concerned department. Surprisingly, concerned officials have least bothered to conduct visits in the nursing homes and clinics to check whether they are following or floating norms.
Owing to poor attitude of the concerned department, the patients are being fleeced by the private clinics and nursing homes as per their wish. Most interestingly, numbers of health clinics and others didn't have all required permissions viz NOC from State Pollution Control Board and Jammu Municipal Corporation.
