Health department slaps fine of Rs 50,000 on fake health centre

Thursday, 11 October 2018 | PNS | Daltonganj

Health, Medical Education and Family Welfare department has slapped a fine of Rs50,000 on Dharamdeo Vishwakarma, the  proprietor of the Rani Sewa Sadan in Garhwa, by invoking section 40(1) of Clinical Establishment Act 2010.

An order to this effect, dated October 09, 2018, has been issued under the signature of principal Secretary Health, Government of Jharkhand, Nidhi Khare.

Sources said this is perhaps the first instance of its kind in Garhwa district, where such a proprietor of a fake health service set up has been taken to task. They said this will come as a deterrent to many other quakes, who open ‘clinics’ in the remote areas of district and fleece innocent patients in the name of treatment, which remains not only inadequate but blatantly sub standard and on most of  the occasions a big health hazard also.

The order of principal secretary health further reads that Vishwakarma may be given permission to run Rani Sewa Sadan, Garhwa only when the fine so imposed on him is realized by the government and legal action against him reaches its logical conclusion.

The order notes down that the aforesaid health service set up Rani Sewa Sadan Garhwa was functioning on ‘fake diploma and degree’ of medical profession. Rani Sewa Sadan Garhwa was sealed on 30.10.2017.

Vishwakarma had then gone into appeal against this sealing of his hospital in State Council exercising section 8 of Clinical Establishment Act 2010 but on September 26 when the State Council sat to hear his appeal Vishwakarma just failed to defend himself and conceded that his Rani Sewa Sadan had no doctor in the name of R L Jaiswal present at the time of inspection.  It was also detected that Vishwakarma was doing practice by proxy in the name of Dr Jaiswal.

Further a board there in the Rani Sewa Sadan showed Dr D D Vishwakarma  as MBBS (AM)  which was not only a fake one but also it is not valid for treatment either by union or state government as well. AM stands for alternative medicine.

A diploma in medical laboratory as presented by this Rani Sewa Sadan Garhwa too was found fake read the order of the principle secretary.
