#Budget2016: Post Budget 2016 reaction by Mr. Vipul Jain, CEO, Advancells

My first reaction is of a bit of disappointment from the budget proposals. There is hardly any thing announced for the healthcare sector. Though the coverage of rupees one lac per family and a top up of 30,000 for senior citizens is a good move towards getting India towards a universal healthcare system but there is no roadmap laid for any healthcare sector reforms that the country badly needs.

There is no additional announcement or clarity towards the proposals already made in Start up India and Make in India initiatives of the government that are already announced nor there are any incentives for innovation and research.
Some tax exemptions are a welcome move but we had expected a lot more.
