Serving Medical Aid on Charity

Dear Sirs,

My daughter is a government doctor and working in Primary Health Centre of district Ratnagiri .

Many at times during night patients come to our house knowing that there is a doctor to seek medical advice, can my daughter serve them on charity and give medicine as it is not allowed to a government doctor for practicing privately .

Therefore this is not a private practice but just serving people on emergency basis. Is there any offence in the eyes of law for serving people on charitable basis being a government officer.

Awaiting your early reply.

Thank you all

She can do service as a Doctor.

It comes under private practice.

Private practice by a government doctor is against departmental rules. If a doctor wants to practice privately, he or she must leave the government job,

There is a blanket ban on the doctors for private practice. 

The government has issued a warning that strict departmental action and cancellation of non-practicing allowance, if any government medical practitioner or doctor was found to practise in private.
