Corporate an5d private hospitals in Hyderabad are refusing to accept the scrapped 500 and 1,000 rupees notes, despite government orders to do so. Many patients and their kin are returning disappointed from the hospitals, which are accepting cards but not big notes. This despite the Centre's clear instructions that all hospitals must accept old notes, especially for emergency services. A number of patients are now being taken to Gandhi Hospital for treatment, as their big notes are not being accepted.
