User charges imposed on AIIMS patients may be withdrawn

Government is considering doing away with the user charges imposed on patients at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences// (AIIMS) here, a senior CPI(M) MP said today.

This was conveyed to a delegation of Members of Parliment led by CPI(M) member Basudeb Acharia when they called on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh here on Tuesday.

The delegation, which also included Nirmala Deshpande and Hannan Mollah, met the Prime Minister weeks after 105 MPs submitted a signed memorandum to him in this regard, Acharia told PTI.

He said the delegation pointed out that the 'huge increase' in the user charges, ranging between 100 to 500 per cent, had put a tremendous burden on poor patients, many of whom came from outside the national capital for treatment.

At least 80 per cent of the patients registered at AIIMS belonged to the poorer sections of society, Acharia said.
