Private hospitals may soon be forced to display on their premises the number of cesarean deliveries conducted by them in order to be empanelled under the Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS). A new agreement between the government and hospitals will also have a provision for punitive measures — including being dropped from the empanelled list — if the hospitals do not fall into line.

Often, in hospitals, the relatives are told about fetal distress or maternal health risk to force them into giving consent for a c-section. This step by the government will help expose the unscrupulous use of this technique during child birth.
