New Delhi: The Supreme Court instructed to NOIDA administration to make sure that there is no multiple clinics or nursing homes carried on their activities within the residential vicinities as it is allowed only in the allocated commercial areas.
Whereas, the bench of justices comprising Swatanter Kumar and Ranjana Prakash Desai said that “doctors can practice in their individual clinics in the residential areas, but the same should be purely on outpatient basis.”
“A clinic simplicitor can be run by a doctor within such area as already specified, in his or her residence. This clinic would mean one as per the bye-laws.
The apex court said, “We also direct that no doctor would be permitted to run a polyclinic or a nursing home in the garb of a clinic.” According to the law neither a polyclinic nor a nursing home can carry on their practices in the residential area.
The decision came out following to the several applications made by the doctors seeking alternative land in view of the apex court’s last year December 5 order that no banks or nursing homes shall operate in the commercial areas.
