Govt. warns private labs against overcharging for COVID-19 tests

The government has warned the designated private laboratories against charging more than the stipulated rates for RT-PCR and RAT tests to detect COVID-19.

The government has fixed ₹500 as the fees for RT-PCR test and ₹200 for RAT test.

Members of the public have been requested to call 0413-2229350 report any case of excessive charge (supported by bills) in the Union Territory.
