Rajasthan  To Privatise Government  Healthcare

The Rajasthan government has decided to invite private participation in healthcare services and to regularise residential colonies built on land meant for agricultural use.

Voluntary organisations, religious trusts and private medical colleges can now take up the management of government health centres on contract.

'The scheme would be reviewed every three months,' Parliamentary Affairs Minister Rajendra Singh Rathore told IANS.

To get a contract, organisations would have to furnish a bank guarantee of Rs.100,000. The contractor would have to provide the same services at the same prices as was being provided by the government, the minister added.

The state cabinet also decided to provide concessions in regularisation of residential colonies set up on agricultural land.

As per the earlier law, it was essential to maintain a ratio of 60 percent residential area and 40 percent facility area but now the state government has agreed allow 75 percent of the area to be built up.

There are about 711 such residential colonies with more than 500,000 plots. Rathore said the state government had also fixed the charges for regularisation of these colonies.
