Legacy of "paperwork" is a millstone tied around India's neck.
Latest example -
Migrant workers who need to travel , now need a "medical certificate" to declare that there are no active symptoms of flu or SARI.

Govt or pvt practitioner can issue this certificate.
This has resulted in a run on clinics + fights over charging for the certificate.

First question, any sensible person should have asked, "is there any way to do this screening WITHOUT using precious and expensive resource i.e. medical practitioners?"
Any doctor worth her training would tell you that - body temp, pulseoxymeter reading, breathing rate and 2-3 screening questions can do the job.

Which among these require a doctor or nurse?
Any literate person with 20min training, non touch thermometer and stopwatch can stand at the railway station/bus station and do this job. It will also prevent hapless workers running around for this "certificate"

But that will solve the problem.

Who is interested in that?
Real interest seems to be in covering own assess, getting one more chance to issue firmans to medical practitioners and of course most important issue - chance to make money for administration, middlemen and doctors.
Simple, effective and cost-efficient solution are NOT wanted here.
Please excuse us, we are INDIA!
