A petition has actually been filed prior to the Supreme Court looking for a direction to the Centre and the state federal governments to repair the optimum rate for the RT-PCR test for COVID-19 consistently all over India. The petition has looked for a direction to the federal governments to repair the maximum rate for the RT-PCR (real-time reverse transcription polymerase domino effect) test to Rs 400 consistently across the country, rather of Rs 900 to Rs 2,800 as repaired by various state governments, Union Territories and NCT of Delhi.
There is a big loot by labs and they are minting money to the tune of crores and crores of rupees. The margin of revenue is so high as it is as high as 1400 per cent in Andhra Pradesh and 1200 percent in Delhi, stated the petition submitted by supporter Ajay Agrawal. It declared that the RT-PCR sets are presently offered for less than rupees 200 in the Indian market.
There is no other cost as the makers used of RT-PCR test are already there with the laboratories as they perform big number of tests. And the matter is worried about 135 crore resident of the nation as everybody worried with the coronavires and required to get their test done at this expensive rate, it said.
It declared that the owner of the private laboratories and hospitals are using the disaster into chance for minting crores and crores of rupees.
