The aim of the subgroup is to provide health insurance and healthcare providers a common platform for developing common understanding on health insurance related issues, encourage innovation and development of sophisticated products.

In this exercise some of the senior level medical clinical experts have contributed in working out the acceptable reasonable treatment guidelines. Enclosed is the List and Summary of the project for your kind perusal.

Having successfully completed the first phase of the project, we would like to initiate peer group review of the identified acceptable standards and guidelines by a professional body like yours, which has high credibility amongst the medical community. This is critical to ensure that the standards have industry wide acceptance. May I therefore request you to kindly provide us with your valuable inputs and suggestions for further improvisation on the enclosed presentation on Tympanoplasty.

Makar Sankranti

On Makar Sankranti day the Sun begins its ascendancy and journey into the Northern Hemisphere, and thus it signifies an event wherein the Gods seem to remind their children that 'Tamaso Ma Jyotir Gamaya'. May you go higher & higher - to more & more Light and never to darkness.

Makar Sankranti is one of the most auspicious day for the Hindus, and is celebrated in almost all parts of the country in myriad cultural forms, with great devotion, fervor & gaiety. Lakhs of people take a dip in places like Ganga Sagar & Prayag and pray to Lord Sun. It is celebrated with pomp in southern parts of the country as Pongal, and in Punjab is celebrated as Lohri & Maghi. Gujarati's not only look reverentially up to the sun, but also offer thousands of their colorful oblations in the form of beautiful kites all over the skyline. They may be trying to reach upto their glorious God or bring about greater proximity with the one who represents the best. It is a day for which Bhishma Pitamah kept waiting to leave his mortal coil.

A Happy Bihu festival
