Recently , I visited some renowned multispeciality hospitals and MRI centres in Bathinda.
I was so amazed to see that some of these renowned institutes were not accepting card payment and any other digital wallet payment mode transection. Even they were not accepting cheques for the payment.
In this digital era where even a local street vendor is using digital payment mode, these hospitals and lab institutes are asking for only cash payments which is not acceptable at all.
In my opinion these health centres should be strictly asked to use ATM/Credit Card swiping machine for the eas of patients family as at these types of situations no one has spare time to arrange such cash amount for the payments in hospital. At least for the payment of more than Rs 10K , ATM swipe machine should be mandatory or any other digital payment mode should be used .
