Fortis To Face Bolt From Haryanavi “VIJ”

[Chandigarh,Haryana]Fortis Hospital To Face Bolt From Haryanavi “VIJ” for Overcharging from a Dengue Patient
As per health Minister Anil Vij ,Haryana government is planning to lodge an FIR aginst Fortis Hospital
Vij alleged at crowded press conference in his office “In simple words, it was not a death, it was a murder,” .
The hospital made a hefty profit on medicines given, which works out to 108 per cent and for some consumables it is as high as 1,737 per cent, he claimed adding that costly medicines were used when cheaper substitutes were available.
Overcharging in giving platelets has also been found, he said. Platelets were given on 25 occasions, out of which Rs 400 per unit was charged on 17 occasions while eight times Rs 2,000 per unit was charged, Vij claimed.
A costly injection was administered on most occasions, which cost Rs 3,112, whereas a substitute costing Rs 499 was available, Vij said citing the inquiry report.
“The death of the girl happened due to not following the LAMA protocol, which is the Leave Against Medical Advice. The girl was on a ventilator, but she was put in an ordinary ambulance, ventilator was withdrawn and an ambu bag was not provided in that, which became the cause of her death, which is a very serious irregularity,” the minister said.
The case relates to the death in September of a 7-year- old girl who was admitted with dengue to the Fortis Memorial Research Institute (FMRI), Gurgaon, a multi super-speciality care hospital.
The minister said that land was given to Fortis hospital under certain terms and conditions, which included 20 per cent of free OPD, ten per cent free beds and 70 per cent discounted treatment to 20 per cent IPD (In Patient Department), but prima facie these were violated.

काली मिर्च पर न्यूनतम आयात मूल्य रु ५०० प्रति कि ग्रा

[नई दिल्ली]काली मिर्च पर न्यूनतम आयात मूल्य रु ५०० प्रति कि ग्रा
केन्द्रीय वाणिज्य एवं उद्योग मंत्रालय ने काली मिर्च के न्यूनतम आयात मूल्य के रूप में प्रति किलो 500 रुपये का सीआईएफ (लागत, बीमा एवं माल भाड़ा) मूल्य तय करने संबंधी मसाला बोर्ड के प्रस्ताव को मंजूरी दे दी है।
पिछले एक साल में काली मिर्च के मूल्यों में लगभग 35 प्रतिशत की गिरावट दर्ज की गई है और इस वजह से काली मिर्च के उत्पादकों को भारी मुश्किलों का सामना करना पड़ रहा है।
चूंकि ज्यादातर काली मिर्च उत्पादक देश आसियान क्षेत्र में अवस्थित हैं, इसलिए साफ्टा और आईएसएलएफटीए के तहत रियायती आयात शुल्क का लाभ उठाने के लिए इन देशों की काली मिर्च को श्रीलंका के जरिए भारत में लाए जाने की भी आशंकाए हैं। किसान संगठनों ने कठोर कदम उठाए जाने की मांग की है, जिसमें काली मिर्च का न्यूनतम आयात मूल्य (एमआईपी) तय करना भी शामिल है, ताकि अन्य देशों से भारत में काली मिर्च के सस्ते आयात पर लगाम लगाई जा सके।
न्यूनतम आयात मूल्य तय करने से खासकर ऐसे समय में घरेलू मूल्य को बेहतर करने में मदद मिलेगी जब काली मिर्च की फसल का कटाई सीजन काफी तेजी से निकट आता जा रहा है
