A Delhi government order said that half of the beds at the GB Pant Hospital would be reserved for Delhiites requiring specialised treatment.

"When hospitals in Delhi get complicated cases, they refer it to GB Pant hospital. Lately, hospital is witnessing rush of patients due to which Delhi residents don't get time for treatment till 6 months or a year. So we took this decision," Health Minister Jain told ANI.

"It has been decided that 50 percent of the total beds shall be reserved for the patients who are the residents of Delhi and should have been referred by another Delhi Government Hospital," the government order said.

The state government runs more than 40 hospitals across the state. G B Pant Hospital has 714 beds and is the flagship super-specialty hospital of Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi (GNCTD).
