After police busted a fake ambulance racket inside the Post Graduate Institute of Medical Education and Research earlier this week, Union Health Minister J P Nadda hinted at strict action against the accused on Sunday.
“I will look into the matter. We believe in transparency and will ensure zero tolerance towards corruption,” Nadda told reporters at the airport.

The police have made few arrests and impounded several ambulances of private operators from PGI. The accused used to operate illegally from the PGI and would also charge more.
Nadda also announced that the number of MBBS seats will be increased to 100 at the Government Medical College and Hospital in Sector 32.
“The medical college demanded that the seats be increased from 50 to 100. The issue has been resolved and I am happy to inform the residents of Chandigarh that we have given the nod for 100 seats for GMCH this year. I hope the increase of seats will help the students,” he said.
