Should Pakistani nationals be allowed to come to India for treatment ?

Medical tourism is generally based on the local hospital/doctor recommending to the foreign one, sometimes directly by the patient too. Either way, the files are fully studied to study the legitimacy of the illness and treatment, and hence the “purpose of visit” as per visa norms. So if one looks at it as a business option, then yes the should be allowed. The only reason to stop is political bickering over letting a ill human continue to suffer. Forget business and politics, even one of the basic Hindu Dharma is the Dharma to serve humanity, and healthcare is definitely serving humanity. Sourajit Aiyer, South Asia Fast Track

    Thanks for reply. Good that you draw my attention to the fact that Dharma could also be the basis for healthcare related decisions. I had always nurtured the idea that it is to be use in politics only.
