This is the same price list the Niti Aayog committee recommended for Delhi. Union home minister Amit Shah, in a meeting with the authorities of Delhi-NCR, had suggested that Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida administration should maintain uniformity in the treatment of COVID-19. The Haryana government responded to the call and fixed the price rate as in Delhi. The UP government, however, has not taken any such move for Noida.
The Delhi government issued an order last week fixing the cost of a COVID-19 isolation bed in any private hospital in Delhi in the range of Rs 8,000-Rs 10,000 and an ICU bed with a ventilator at Rs 15,000-Rs 18,000 per day.
