  1. It is just tip of icebergs in all medical malpractice . Doctors take commissions for each patients they operate. Take for premiere Indra Gandhi institute of medical science patna. For every cataract surgery done in college ophthalmologist (including head of department ) collect rupee 2000-3000 per foldable intra-ocular lens. This happens by method of illegal nexus of ophthalmologist with shopkeepers who provides intra-ocular lens to patients.

  2. itz very common practice in government medical colleges nd hospitals in bihar. Even renowned doctors of bihar won\’t follow the work ethics .

  3. Not only Bihar, it is malpractice rampant in entire country!
