Jagmohan Garg Report : After Max, another hospital in Delhi accused of medical negligence

Jagmohan Garg, accuses BKL hospital in Delhi of medical negligence due to which Neeraj Garg lost his daughter, Deepa, on November 25.

Another case of alleged medical negligence has come to light, this time from BKL hospital in Karol Bagh area.

Neeraj Garg, a resident of Gwalior, on Sunday said that he had lost his daughter, Deepa, due to medical negligence of the hospital, who had claimed to cure her of Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia type 2 (CDA II).

“On the recommendation of a doctor, we admitted her in the hospital. My daughter underwent a (bone marrow) transplant at the hospital in the month of November. After a few days, she fell sick, faced breathing problems and severe headache. Doctors continued to say that all this is normal,” said Neeraj Garg, whose daughter died on November 25.

Garg, who, according to the bill shown to ANI, has been billed over 17 lakhs for nearly a month-long treatment, also accused the hospital of misleading them in regards to bone marrow transplant treatment.

Garg said before undergoing the treatment, they had tried to ascertain with the hospital if they had treated anyone earlier with this method.

Garg said the hospital assured them about the treatment; however her condition began to worsen soon after the treatment.

“A few days later, doctors said that they will have to shift her to ICU as she had developed some infection. And what was most shocking was when the doctors said now she will have to be kept on ventilator because of breathing issues. They said this is normal process so don’t worry,” he said.

Garg also said that hospital authorities were rude to him when he confronted them following her daughter’s death.

A few days ago, Delhi Max Hospital (Situated in Shalimar Bagh) was in the news after the hospital declared new-born twin babies dead. However, later on, one of them was found to be alive.

In November, Fortis Hospital, Gurgaon, had allegedly overcharged a family for treating their daughter of dengue. The seven-year-old girl did not survive and a bill of Rs 16 lakh for 15-day treatment was handed to the family.

Garg says : Government seeks Rs 13,000 crore surplus from RBI

The government has not asked the Reserve Bank to pay any special dividend and is only seeking Rs 13,000 crore of surplus lying with the central bank, Economic Affairs Secretary  Garg has said.

In August, the RBI had paid a dividend of Rs 30,659 crore for the fiscal ended June 2017. It was less than half the Rs 65,876 crore it had paid in 2015-16.

The government had budgeted for a Rs 58,000 crore dividend from the RBI in its Budget for this fiscal year.

“There is no proposal at this stage to ask for any special dividend. What is being discussed is to only ask for what the RBI earned this year but did not distribute. That is about Rs 13,000 crore. That’s what the government has suggested the Reserve Bank to transfer,” Garg told PTI.

RBI’s profit was about Rs 44,000 crore, of which Rs 30,000 crore has been distributed and Rs 13,000 crore it retained towards risks and reserves. So the government has made a suggestion that the Rs 13,000 crore may also be transferred, he said.

The government had last month announced an unprecedented Rs 2.11 lakh crore capital infusion in PSU banks, which are grappling with high non-performing assets (NPAs).

Asked about the contours of the recap bonds, Garg said “the recapitalisation package is in the final stages. The Department of Financial Services is working on it and soon we would see all these aspects being addressed”.

Of the Rs 2.11 lakh crore, Rs 1.35 lakh crore would be infused through recapitalisation bonds and the remaining Rs 76,000 crore through budgetary support and banks diluting equity in capital market.

Credit rating agency Moody’s had last week upgraded India’s sovereign rating after a gap of over 13 years citing reform push and steps being taken by the government to solve the high NPA problems in the banking sector.

Bad loans in the sector have neared Rs 10 lakh crore.

Garg said Moody’s has acknowledged the reform process and believes that India is in a position to control its debt and put its banking sector in order.

“The kind and quality of reforms, the boldness of reforms, the structural, fundamental needs of reform is what has persuaded them to believe that India is now on a longer term high growth path …That (reform) process will continue and I don’t see any slackening in reform effort,” he said.

The US-based rating agency cited government efforts to reduce corruption, formalise economic activity and improve tax collection and administration, including through demonetisation and GST, as well as improvements to the monetary policy framework and measures to clean up non- performing loans as reform steps which would foster sustained economic growth.

On privatisation of Air India, said it is progressing “reasonably steadily” and the plan about how to privatise has also been broadly worked out.

Asked if it would happen in the current fiscal, Garg said, “I won’t put a timeline on when this is likely. Air India is not just one company, there are other assets.”

The government has ‘in-principle’ decided to dis invest the Air India group as a whole or its constituents fully or part thereof through the strategic sale with transfer of management control.

Air India has a debt burden of more than Rs 50,000 crore.

The Cabinet, in June, had decided on strategic disinvestment of the loss-making Air India, which is staying afloat on taxpayers’ funds, and a ministerial panel is working on the modalities.

July-Sept GDP growth will be far better than previous quarter: DEA Secretary Garg

The economy will grow at a faster pace in quarter-ended September, as compared with the first quarter of the financial year 2017-18 (Apr-Mar), Department of Economic Affairs Secretary Garg said today.

The economy will grow at a faster pace in quarter-ended September, as compared with the first quarter of the financial year 2017-18 (Apr-Mar), Department of Economic Affairs Secretary Subhash Chandra Garg said today.

In January 2007, S&P had changed India’s rating to BBB-, which is the lowest investment grade rating for bonds. The outlook that it assigned back then was “stable” which it later changed to negative in 2009 and again raised it to stable in 2010.

While S&P did not upgrade India’s rating, Garg said that the global credit ratings agency’s views on the country is similar to Moody’s.

Last week, another top global ratings agency Moody’s Investor Service changed the outlook for India’s rating to stable from positive, after a span of 13 years.

Garg said that while S&P “chose to stay cautious” before any ratings upgrade, it expects India’s real GDP growth rate to average at 7.6 percent over 2017-2020.

In fact, S&P’s comments on the country’s debt position is more “generous” as compared with other agencies, he said.

“India’s high fiscal deficits in past years have led to the accumulation of sizable general government borrowings (about 67 percent of GDP in 2017, net of liquid assets) and relatively high debt servicing costs (close to one-fifth of general government revenue),” S&P said in its statement.

“We project that net general government debt will decline by a modest amount over our forecast horizon,” it said.

According to S&P, over the next two years, growth will remain strong, and fiscal deficits will remain broadly in line with their forecasts.

Upward pressure on the ratings could build if the government’s reforms markedly improve its net general government fiscal out-turns and reducing the level of net government debt.

However, there could be downward pressure on the ratings if GDP growth disappoints.
“…causing us to reassess our view of trend growth; if net general government deficits rose significantly; or if the political will to maintain India’s reform agenda significantly lost momentum,” the ratings agency said.

“July-September GDP (Gross Domestic Product) data will come soon. We are confident of a reversal in the decline (in growth). Second quarter (growth) will be far better than the first. Economy’s turnaround is very clear,” Garg told the reporters after credit ratings agency Standard and Poor’s (S&P) today retained India’s outlook as stable and kept the rating unchanged at BBB-.

While the S&P retained India’s rating, it lauded the government’s fiscal consolidation drive and said that the reforms undertaken are favourable for the economy.
