Hi, How are you?
I am sure you mean Hepatitis C (Kali-Peelia) when you say black jaundice?
A set of investigations need to be done before we can advise regarding the best treatment for him. A HCV RNA PCR and genotyping of the virus is a must as different genotypes require different treatment and they respond differently to treatment as well. Most gastro-enterologists would be specialised in treating Hepatitis C and most hospitals in Delhi also will be equipped to treat it. People do travel to Ludhiana alsol for treatment as Punjab has a high incidence of Hepatits C and lots of doctors are specialised in treating it.

Hope this helped and please do not hesitate to contact me for any further details required -
