Why look for alternative means of earning to compensate for subsidy provided in consultation fee

Many doctors claim that they charge only Rs100 or 200 as consultation fee. Can they survive with this subsidy? Probably not... So, they try to find some alternative sources of income. Some of them may be ethical and some unethical.

Medicine is regarded as the most noble of all professions. And, a doctor is accorded a status next to God. Hence, a doctor is duty bound to practice ethical medicine, which also includes ethical earning.

Our privileges to practice can be withdrawn in case of breach of the ethical code.
