The Supreme Court has expressed concern over the cases of making fake medical certificates for compensation of Rs 50,000 to be received from Corona on death. The court indicated that it may order the CAG to investigate the matter.

Nagarathna said that there should be some time limit for the claims seeking compensation. “It is a matter of concern that fake certificates are being given by the doctors,” the bench said. This is a very serious matter. Please suggest how can we curb the issue of fake certificates being issued by doctors. It can take away someone’s real rights.
