New Delhi, (1/2/2019): As the Government announced the interim budget for the fiscal year 2019-20, various industries, education institution and big companies welcomed the budget present by the Finance Minister.Dr. Manoj Luthra, CEO, Jaypee Hospital, said ;
“The honourable finance minister’s proposals laid out in today’s budget are commendable. The focus on assuring access to quality healthcare services has the potential to change the way Indians live and work. National Health Protection Scheme-Ayushman Bharat has taken long strides to ensure the achievement of the Prime Minister’s vision of providing quality and affordable healthcare facilities to all. Already around 10 lakh poor and vulnerable people have benefited through the free medical treatment made available under the scheme. Significant number of poor and middle class people are also benefitting from the reduction in prices of essential medicines, cardiac stents and knee implants at affordable prices. Government’s approach to advance the healthcare infrastructures of the economy by inaugurating multi-speciality hospitals such as AIIMS or primary healthcare centres is also significant.
Healthcare is a backbone of any economy and a healthy India is essential to keep up the growth momentum of our nation and contribute towards becoming a $5 trillion economy in the next five years. I congratulate government on their visionary approach to building a distress-free and comprehensive healthcare system for all.”
