  19. I am residing in Pune maharastra and want to have medical heckup but no doctors in nearby area. My area is Pimple saudagar. Please let me know for correct doctors so that i can complete my yatra on 3rd July.

  20. Dear Sir,

    I would like to bring to your notice the following difficulties encountered by the prospective yatris for Amarnath yatra 2013.

    1) The total process for issuing health certificate is absolutely flawed with no guidelines given by the Shrine board to be followed by the hospital for issuing the same.

    2) The Salt Lake SD hospital in Kolkata, West Bengal is taking too long to issue the certificate even after completion of all tests. First they are asking to go to the physician for clearance. After he has cleared, even then they ask you to go to the anesthetist for further clearance. I have been wasting full days standing in queue for the last several days without any result. They are not bothered about it and are doing their routine work and think this as an additional burden. It is a shame that no fixed set of guidelines are followed by every hospital, which should have been set by the Amarnath Shrine Board.

    3) My sister got her test done at Fortis Hospital Delhi, there they did not put the hospital rubber stamp and when she went to deposit the same to the bank, the bank asked for the rubber stamp with the respective doctors name on it which is on the website. When she again went to the hospital they said that they don't have the rubber stamps with the doctors name and when she insisted they said they will order it and asked her to come again after 3 days.

    4) It is not understood why different hospitals are charging different rates for the medical under the package scheme. While Fortis in Delhi is charging some 2800/-, Medica is issuing the same at 1000/-. Why Amarnath Shrine Board did not fix one Standard rates for the same.

    All these and more are creating a whole lot of difficulties for the yatris.

    I think the Amarnath Shrine Board which manages all these have fallen short on taking all this into account.
    This is totally faulty planning by the board. Such was not expected.
