    It is not at all clear from echs hoshiarpur that what is the exact timming for attending the vetren patients from and up to what time.Because it is seen that the turn slips issued from the reception is stopped at 1.o clock. The staff at each level is not ready to help even to the vetren patient above 70 after 1.O Clock .

      In baghpat ECHS start working 9 o clock then tea break at 10 o clock and then close reception at 1 O clock.Nothing can be done to improve .Wheare as working hours suppose to be 48 hour in a week ,means 8 hours per day Monday to Saturday.
