Dear All,

The undersigned has been raising the issue of disclosure of information under RTI Act 2005 about patients belonging to EWS Category getting the mandated subsidized treatment from Medanta, Artemis & Fortis Hospitals since 2010.

The Hon'ble State Information Commission, Haryana while disposing undersigned Complaints under RTI Act 2005 ordered that information regarding subsidized information being given by these Hospitals be provided on its web-site as well as HUDA (the Govt. Institution which gave land to these Hospitals on institutional rates) but the compliance of Hon'ble State Information Commission by these Hospitals have been dismal. This has been going on for last five years.

Fed up with non compliance of Hon'ble State Information Commission, Haryana, my dear friend and fellow RTI Activist Mr Aseem Takyar filed PIL in Punjab & Haryana High Court seeking directions of implementation of Hon'ble SIC order, the Hon'ble double bench of High Court issued notices to Haryana Government & Medanta, Artemis & Fortis Hospitals. Sensing the importance and urgency of the matter, a short date of 28th July 2015 has been given by Hon'ble HC.

Kindly enclosed herewith find the news clippings appearing in Hindustan Times English, Hindustan Hindi both dated 17th July 2015.

Thanks for your time,

The state had allotted land to private hospitals on the condition that EWS patients would be treated at subsidized rates.Read more at;
