C.W.P. No. 121 of 2007
Date of Decision : 09.01.2007
State of Punjab and others.
CORAM : Hon'ble Mr. Justice J.S. Khehar,
Hon'ble Mr. Justice S.D. Anand
Present : Mr. B.P.S. Virk, Advocate,
for the petitioner.
J.S. Khehar, J. (Oral)
The petitioner is stated to have got medical treatment from the Fortis Heart Institute at Mohali for coronary artery by pass grafting. He remained hospitalized for the said purpose from 6.2.2002 to 12.2.2002. It is also the case of the petitioner, that in the process of his treatment, he incurred expenses to the tune of Rs.1,54,097/-.
Having considered the claim of the petitioner the Directorate of Health & Family Welfare, Punjab, sanctioned a sum of Rs.90,647/- as payable to the petitioner on account of medical reimbursement. During the course of hearing, learned counsel for the petitioner informed us, that the petitioner has factually been reimbursed the aforestated amount of Rs.
Through the instant writ petition, the claim of the petitioner is CWP No. 121 of 2007 2
for the payment of the remaining amount beyond Rs. 90,647/-. No basis thereof has been expressed in the entire writ petition for the afore-stated claim. It is not possible for us to entertain a claim without the petitioner laying a legal foundation therefor.
In view of the above, we are of the view that the claim of the petitioner for any further amount beyond the sum of Rs.90,647/- cannot be accepted.
