This research article attempts a study of SIRS epidemic model where saturated incidence rate under treatment forms a mathematical condition, the assumption being that there are two distinct possibilities informing the rate at which treatment rate is administered: one which remains unvarying over a period of time regardless of the number of infected individuals receiving treatment; another where the proportion at which treatment is provided is determined by the number of individuals directly affected by the epidemic. The existence and stability of equilibrium points are explored for both the cases. The analytical results are in fine agreement with numerical simulations.
