But now due to breaking of fire at the Care hospitals eye brows have been raised and NMC is being questioned about issuing licenses thus Dr Ganvir appealed to all private hospitals to approach the NMC’s fire department for fire safety audit and emphasized on safety issues in the smaller establishments. If any hospital failed to get NOC certificate from fire department the license of the hospital would get canceled.
