Doctor may be fines upto 50 lacs

Medicolegal series 10

● As per provision of CPA Bill 2019 recently passed by both the houses # Failing to comply with any order made by the consumer forum or Commission may attract punishment of imprisonment for a term of one month to three years or with fine of 25000 to 1 lakh rupees, or with both.

● Any doctor or healthcare who causes a false or misleading advertisement will be punished with fine which may extend to Rs. 10 Lacs; and for every subsequent offense, be punished with fine which may extend to Rs. 50 Lacs.

This is a good provision for qualified doctors who want to do practice in their respective field.

Even we can stop the unqualified doctors who earn money by giving false and misleading advertisement if we make this implemented effectively.
