LabsAdvisor.com recently organised a play to bring awareness about the doctor commission system prevalent in the diagnostic sector of the country. In many cases, doctors get 20 to 60% of the price of the test from the lab as referral commission. MCI considers this illegal because

- It increases the cost of the tests significantly which cause financial hardships on the economically weaker patients.
Many newspapers supported the initiative by LabsAdvisor.com and published articles highlighting the practice.
