Those who have been cured will be given an option either to deposit full payment for treatment or to make it partially . When a patient is discharged he will be told to fill in a form consisting of all the information about the expenses made for treatment. In that form, he will be asked to tell whether he wants to pay some money for his treatment or government should do that. Many people being admitted to hospital have the capacity to pay for their treatment. The option is meant for such people as can afford the treatment. The government wants that it should provide free treatment to the poor. But those who can afford treatment for the disease should partially bear the expenses. Madhya Pradesh is the only state where government and private hospitals are treating corona pa- tients. Such people as can afford treatment are being admitted to private hospitals. As the government is providing free treatment to corona patients, ministers, legislators, officers, businessmen and those who are holding important positions are taking the benefit of free treatment. Apart from them, there are many who can pay for their treatment. The government is spending between Rs 60,000 and Rs 65,000 on each corona patient. There are allegations that the government is benefiting the private hospitals in the name of providing free treatment to corona patients. The government’s aim is to tell people how much money is being spent on each patient, so that canards can be stopped. A patient must know how much money the government has spent on a patient. AgR DueS Telcos get 10 yrs for staggered payment Our Bureau NEW DELHI The Supreme Court on Tuesday allowed the telecom companies 10 years to pay up their dues related to adjusted gross revenue (AGR); this is a big relief to all, especially to Vodafone Idea Ltd which would have folded up if asked to cough up over Rs 58,000 crore dues in one go. A 3-judge Bench headed by Justice Arun Mishra, for whom this is one of the last verdicts before he retires on Wednesday asked , the telcos to make 10% upfront payment of their AGR dues; the timeline for the staggered payments starts from April 1, 2021. The two other judges on the Bench were Justices S Abdul Nazeer and M R Shah. The Bench sought an undertaking from the MDs and CEOs of the telecom companies for the payment, warning that failure to pay instalments will incur penalty in, terest and contempt of court. Vodafone Idea and rival Bharti Airtel had sought 15 years to pay AGR dues, while Tata Teleservices Ltd wanted 7-10 years. Reliance Jio, which was launched in September 2016, had paid its relatively minuscule dues of Rs 195.18 crore in January .
