If the doctors confirms his illness then arrange treatment or else issue a letter regarding his absenteeism and ask him to submit an explanation with in next three days, build a file and organize a domestic enquiry and terminate or else ask him to submit his resignation and close the account.

So, better try to diagnose the actual cause of his headache rather than resorting to some punitive action.
We HRs should be 'genuinely' interested in the problems of employees and help in the best manner possible. Job rotation can be tried out.
Moreover; it is very harsh to ask a low paid employee to go for a Medical examination AT HIS OWN COST just on the whims of the concerned HR person.
If its at all necessary, then it should be ARRANGED by the company and it should bear the cost.

Your establishment is itself a "Medical Diagnostic Center". Why have you asked him to get a medical certificate from elsewhere. Get to the root cause of the headache and be nice to him. May be his case be genuine. Also in such cases if the workman is not able to provide the medical certificate it is the duty of the management and as an HRD Personnel yours to get him examined and make sure he is not lying.
