This is a very well rounded budget with a very good focus on healthcare and education. The budget has great news for the entire country’s healthcare ecosystem. Launching the largest healthcare programme benefiting 50 cr people will give a huge boost to the entire healthcare ecosystem in the country especially in Tier 2 markets. The implementation is something that will be tested over time but this is a great step towards – ‘Universal health coverage’ for the entire country. Also the critical illness waiver on medical insurance is a welcome step for elderly people in the country. Finally ‘Swasth Bharat ‘ will be a reality.
