State Government of Punjab on 5 December 2014 decided to ban health camps without prior approval of district civil surgeons. The decision was made after more than dozen people lost their vision partially following cataract operation in a camp at Gurdaspur district of the state.

The free eye check-up camp was conducted by a Mathura-based NGO in Uttar Pradesh.

The government has also made mandatory that the civil surgeon, before allowing any medical camp, would certify that the organisation has sufficient medical infrastructure and specialists to conduct surgeries.

Civil surgeons have also been asked to ensure that sterilized equipment is used for surgery in such camps and a proper pre-operative and post-operative case of the pateinets is taken.

The Jalandhar based eye surgeon who carried out the operations at the health camp and coordinator of Mathura based NGO that organised the camp have been arrested.
