    ”The upcoming budget will be driven keeping in mind the pandemic situation. 2021 has been a year of innovation across sectors and I believe telemedicine is one of the upcoming innovative sectors under the healthcare umbrella. I am expecting that the government will allocate funds on resource development to monitor the present health status of the population and deliver accurate healthcare services digitally. I also look forward to this year’s budget creating a positive change for the rural population in terms of accessibility and affordability to primary healthcare and opening the gates for easy-to-understand and hassle-free technologies that can penetrate deep in the country reaching the last mile and making healthcare available for all. ”

    “Govt has taken some key measures over the last few years including relaxation of FDI norms for the insurance segment leading to continued growth of insurance industry.Last few years have seen innovation in delivery of sachet or small sized products to customers leading to a large base of first time insurance buyers. Given the key role that micro insurance products play in increasing insurance penetration, all policies valued less than Rs. 1000/- should be exempt from taxes or taxed at the lowest possible slab. Even large ticket insurance policies serves the public at the time of severe stress and has to be treated as an essential commodity hence a revision of tax slab from current 18% would help increase protection layers for all Indians.”
