The world’s largest government’s funded healthcare program – National Healthcare Protection Scheme (NHPS) announced by our FM, with approximately 500 million beneficiaries, an insurance scheme of up to Rs 5 lakh per family per year for secondary and tertiary care hospitalization is a welcome move not just to maintain a healthy India but this, I believe, will also create several lakh/s new jobs in the country as new healthcare facilities will come up in smaller districts and villages. This move will go a long way in empowering India’s poor and underprivileged.
