Srinagar, Feb 24: The Private Diagnostic Centers Association Kashmir on Friday alleged that they have been suffering as online registration portals in J&K mostly remain defunct and clerical staff at district and divisional level are resorting to dilly-dally tactics for their personal benefits.
President of the Association Umar Iqbal Dhar, said that registration process has been made complex that is why provisional registration that is to be granted within fifteen days, takes months together
Permanent Registration is to be granted after twelve months expiry of provisional registration but it all lingers due to reasons known to higher ups, he said.
He said that though, Government of India has been trying to simplify most of the platforms but here in case of Private Health Sector, it seems as if it’s existence is nowhere and when it comes to the implementation of Acts, Laws, Rules, Regulations, it seems it has been hijacked by some of the road hackers.
For registration of private diagnostic centers, huge flaws leaking the unjustified verdicts against the laws which otherwise simplify the process, he said adding that officials must understand the basic difficulties faced by the private health sector while seeking registration as per the laws in vogue.
He said that the government must encourage such persons who invest in the health sector as it undoubtedly offers employment to a huge population of technical and professional human resources.
Government of India while easing the process to have online registration , the establishment owners are being asked to deposit hard copy which speaks volumes while realizing the overall outcome of such process, he said, adding that the hard copies being submitted are subjected unnecessary queries which again speaks volumes about inefficient system in place who otherwise have to adhere to online system of submission besides that queries are being raised by clerical staff for their own benefits and over staying clerics must be transferred at an earliest.
Against huge fee structure for example in case of PC&PNDT Act , the concern Municipal Authorities didn’t provide any kind of service for what they are getting fee while government has been sending non-professionals for checking of diagnostic centres who have nothing to with do due to which centre owners are often being humiliated, he said.
