Bullish on India – Healthcare Radius Magazine

BR Life entered India in 2013. However, it’s only in the last two years that the group has come into prominence with a series of acquisitions. What is the reason for this renewed thrust in India?

India’s healthcare industry is growing at a fast pace. There is a growing impetus from the Government of India on the healthcare industry as well. Our recent budget has also given high importance to healthcare.

In India, the health insurance penetration is only for 20% of the population. I see this as huge potential for enhancing the healthcare facilities in the country. The Ayushman Bharath Scheme, recently announced by the Government of India, has a lot of promise. There could not be a better time than now to be in India and play an active role in enhancing the healthcare system in the country.
