Dear Vivek,

TB in India is treated as per the DOTS system. DOTS stands for Directly Observed Treatment Shortcourse, which means that you will be directly observed by the hospital/clinic staff while you take your medicine. This is done to ensure less chance of a patient discontinuing the course by his/herself.
