INTRODUCTION
 
IN India health care system is the synthesize form of capitalistic and socialistic systems. Public health services and private health service system co-exist in this study region. Our government’s political ideology of democratic ideal values allows both public and private health services to function side by side. So here, both public and private health services provide to the health needs of various sections of the society. Since with the limited resource, the status of public health services is not able to provide satisfactory health service to all the citizens, the private health service supports the public health service by meeting health needs of those who can afford to pay for it. Medical facility, being an integral part of socio-economic conditions, has major role in the prevention of disease and promotion of health.
