Press Release by Sri Sathya Sai Central Trust

March 29, 2012

Subsidised Power Tariff Scheme reinstated :

The Government had issued a  notification on  21.01.2012  that the concessional tariff granted to the Super specialty Hospital at Prashantigram would be  withdrawn  forthwith and  and directed that henceforth the normal tariff be applied to the Institute w.e.f January 2009

We wrote to the Government pointing out that

(a) The circumstances under which the concessional tariff was granted 
remain the same.

(b) The scope of medical services offered by the hospital has increased since 1993.

(c)This is the only super-speciality hospital in Anantapur District that gives tertiary care to the poor and needy.

(d) In comparable circumstances, the Government of Karnataka has granted a special subsidy to Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences, Whitefield, Bengaluru and Sri Sathya Sai General Hospital, Whitefield, Bengaluru.

We are pleased to report that on the basis of this representation the Govt of Andhra Pradesh has issued an order vide G.O .Rt.No .42  that the notification referred above be kept in abeyance. 

This would mean that the subsidised Power tariff enjoyed  earlier by the Super specialty Hospital at Prashantigram  would continue.
