Dear Editor,

We appreciate the suggestions [1] regarding scoring scale of attitude component. In our study, [2] we have already mentioned in materials and methods section how attitude was measured with scoring pattern. In the present article, authors have assessed the attitude of undergraduates (UG), interns, and post-graduates (PG) regarding ECs, however, the attitude of paramedical staff [Table 1] has not assessed. The question 1 i.e., should paramedical staff dispense emergency contraception (EC)? Such question was asked to UGs, interns, and PGs and not to the paramedical staff. In question number one of the attitude component, the focus is on paramedical staff. Other three questions really focus on knowledge and not on the attitude. In Table 3, the question 2, 3, and 4 in addition to knowledge component, it mainly deals with the attitude component of ECs.
