The unnecessary surgeries not only posed a health threat to women but also pushed them into financial crises as they were forced to take loans to clear hospital bills.

These hospitals were charging Rs 25-40 thousand per surgery.

Out of 54 hospitals, 37 are located in Nizamabad, nine in Armoor, and one in Bodhan. These hospitals have to furnish details as soon as possible.
