M. Ta. Representative, Nagpur

The state government has passed a decision determining the fees for CT scans. Doctors of The Indian Radiologists and Imaging Association have filed a petition challenging the decision in the Nagpur Bench of the Mumbai High Court. In this case, Justice. Ravi Deshpande and Justice. Pushpa Ganediwala’s bench issued notices to the state health secretary, district collector and municipal commissioner and directed them to reply by October 7.

CT scan machines with a capacity of 16 to 64 slices are mainly used in the state. Depending on the capacity, the rates of CT scans are fixed. There is a charge of Rs 2,000 for scanning with a machine of less than 16 slices, Rs 2,500 for scanning of a machine of 16 to 64 slices and Rs 3,000 for scanning of a machine of more than 64 slices. These include charges for CT scans, inspection reports, personal safety kits, disinfection and GST. In such a case, the state government was required to seek the opinion of the representatives of the association before fixing the rate of CT scan. However, the state government appointed a committee on September 15. There was no representative of the organization. According to the report of this committee, on 24th September, the state government fixed the fee for CT scan by a government decision. The government did not know the side of the X-ray specialist doctor before making this decision. The petitioners, therefore, sought stay of the decision of the Government. The court heard the pleas of the petitioners and issued notices to the defendants. Refusing to grant a temporary stay on the order, the case will be heard along with other petitions related to Corona, he clarified. Adv. Kartik Shukul, Adv. Sumant Devpujari and Adv. Gemini Cast presented the case.
