"We have received complaints that some hospitals and labs are exploiting people by charging high prices," Sudhakar said adding that the government’s decision is aimed at checking this. The Minister warned that strict action would be taken against hospitals and labs which violate rules and charge high prices.

The government hospitals are providing CT-scan and X-ray facility free of cost, he said and appealed to people to utilise their services.
