"Government has decided to do away with the VIP culture in the government hospitals. Our effort is to give everyone quality treatment irrespective of his income or other profile," the health minister said.

In this regard, Jain mentioned that an amount of Rs 4,000 crores is being spent annually, which was enough to meet the health requirements if expended efficiently and for the purpose it was meant for.

The Health Minister also underscored the need for building trust between the government and the private sector to strengthen the health infrastructure in Delhi and ensuring quality health services to the masses.

"The industry input will be vital since they have the hands-on experience in implementing the project and running it in an efficient manner," he added.

Jain said that the Delhi government would be setting up 500 'Mohalla Clinics' in the next one year or so, designed to cater mainly to the economically weaker sections. Also, the capacity of government hospitals will be enhanced by adding 10,000 or so new beds in the next two-and-and-a-half years.
