Author(s): Neha Khtari Damani
Abstract: Medical practice is of dignity and honour and is expected to serve the suffering humanity be it rich or poor, caste or creed. After having professional degree the doctors are supposed to uphold the moral values in discharging their duties. Patients treat doctors none other than the GOD.

This has resulted free hand to Pharma companies, Path Labs and the Doctors to play foul. The sole purpose is to amass the wealth at the cost of poor suffering patients.
