Delhi High Court has urged the Delhi Government to set a price limit for hospitals.
The Delhi High Court has ordered the Delhi government to issue a new order regulating expenses collected by private hospitals and nursing homes for Covid-19 patients’ treatment. The division bench of Justices Vipin Sanghi and Rekha Palli has requested that the issue be given “top priority,” claiming that, despite the fact, hospitals have set package prices, they are demanding money “over and above” from patients under several headings. The conference will include amicus curiae senior lawyer Rajshekhar Rao, according to the statement.

The court stated that the reality on the ground cannot be ignored just because no complaints have been filed. “It’s all about the price. It is not an easy task, but someone must undertake it “The bench remarked.
