Private hospitals and clinics come under the purview of Shop and Establishments Act of the respective state. In Maharashtra, there is a Bombay Nursing Home Registration Act, 1949.

Shop and Establishments Act does not deal with medical infrastructure, facilities, standards etc of medical establishments. It is ironical that the Shops and Establishment Act registration is the prime and perhaps the only ‘licensing’ requirement for private hospitals and medical establishments in the country.
