Free Lab Tests

Southasia - - BRIEFS -

In India, the State Gov­ern­ment of Delhi is go­ing to pro­vide free MRI and CT scan fa­cil­i­ties in pri­vate lab­o­ra­to­ries to poor pa­tients with less than Rs. 3 lakh an­nual in­come. To sub­sidise med­i­cal tests and pro­vide free medicines to bona fide cit­i­zens of the cap­i­tal, the gov­ern­ment will use the money saved from timely con­struc­tion of roads, bridges and fly­overs. In Delhi on an av­er­age, it takes more than a year to get an MRI or CT scan done in a gov­ern­ment hospi­tal. Ini­tially, seven pri­vately-run ra­di­ol­ogy cen­tres in New Delhi will pro­vide the free fa­cil­ity.
