The Health Ministry asked states to ensure that the prices declared by various private CVCs do not exceed the ceiling.
“The private hospitals may charge up to a maximum
of Rupees 150 per dose as service charges. State governments may monitor the price being so charged,” the ministry said.
The ministry also requested states and union territories to regularly monitor the prices being charged by the private CVCs from the citizens.
“It is also requested that wherever instances of overcharging as compared to the price declared by the CVC come to notice, appropriate strict action is taken against any such private CVCs,” it said.
