The step comes in order to increase transparency amidst the world wide pandemic.

The data available on the screen has to be reconciled with one on the government app and health portal.

To check the integrity of the order, surprise checks may be conducted by Delhi Disaster Management Authority to ensure that data is being displayed and no genuine patient is denied admission.

An action taken report may be sent urgently.
