Private Sector Nurses should be paid equal to their Government Counterparts
A committee led by Dr. (Prof.) Jagdish Prasad, DGHS, under the MOHFW has found the pay by private nursing homes and hospitals to the nursing staff to be significantly lower compared to the government setups. A petition led by the Indian Nursing Council to the Supreme Court to bring parity to the payscale. The following recommendations have been made -

- Base wage to be minimum of Rs 20,000 a month

- In 50 - 100 bed hospitals, salaries to not be less than 25% paid to government nurses of the same grade

- In 100 - 200 bed hospitals, salaries to not be less than 10% in comparison to state hospital nursing staff.

- In more than 200 bed hospitals, salaries to be at par with state government nurses, depending on their grades and experience
