Recently, Medical Service Providers Association, a private hospital association filed a petition in the Chennai High Court.
The petition said that electricity charged for the private hospitals are charged same as the factories, MNC’s and Cineplexes
This petition was heard by Justice D Raja. The association said that as they are using advanced technologies for the sickly patients
Since the Electricity board are charging the private hospitals the same as the factories,
the hospitals are forced to add the cost on the patient’s treatment bill.
And they also pointed out in the court that Karnataka and Maharashtra governments have special electricity charges for the private hospitals.
Justice D Raja has accepted the petition, has ordered TN government and TNERC to reply within 2 weeks.
