Dr Balasubramaniam was Great man .he never charged beyond 20 rupee so he was called as  '20 rupee DOCTOR'

 He lived in streets of Sidhapudur near Gandhipuram in Coimbatore .Sometimes 
he never charged poor man who did not have money.
Running a clinic in Sidhapudur, Dr Balasubramaniam, who passed away from a cardiac arrest on Friday, earned the moniker of “20-rupees doctor” because that was the maximum fee he charged from any of his patients. Hailing from Bodinayakanur in Theni district, Dr Balasubramaniam, set up clinics for the poor wherever his employment with the ESIC took him – in Theni, Chennimalai in Erode, and Coimbatore. He first started off charging his patients just Rs 2 for a consultation, slowly increasing it over the years by small amounts. Even until two years ago, he only asked his patients for a fee of Rs 10.
