Does India really have a shortage of doctors and hospital beds?

One of the commonest solutions prescribed to treat India's ailing health care system is creating more medical colleges to churn out more doctors ; and building more hospitals. The standard party line seems to be that we don't have enough doctors , given the large number of patients we have ; and there aren't enough hospital beds.
