‘I feel it will take our country to a much new required growth trajectory’

This budget will help us as a nation achieve our objectives of economic growth keeping in mind the equitable distribution of various benefits and resources at a much more faster pace.

The fact that the increase in allocation to the tune of Rs 151,581 crores for social sectors including education and health which translates to an eight per cent growth from the last year’s allocation is a welcome change.

The proposed health insurance scheme which intends to protect one-third of India’s population against hospitalisation expenditure is indeed worth mentioning.

An additional 3,000 generic medical stores which will be opened under the Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Yojana will definitely give a positive boost to healthcare access.

Holistically looking at the budget, I do feel it will take our country to a much new required growth trajectory.
