Dr. Arjun Dang, CEO of Dr. Dangs Lab, claimed that the Union Budget 2023-24 is progressive and pays consideration to the sector’s future allocation needs.
While praising the government’s budget allocation for healthcare, Dr Arjun Dang said, “The attention to the healthcare sector and the futuristic allocations in the budget are certainly worth appreciation. The healthcare sector has been allocated Rs 89,155 crore which is an increase compared to last year (Rs 86,200 crore).” “This included a much-needed push to the pharmaceutical sector. Healthcare infrastructure has been given a boost through the proposal for 157 nursing colleges along with the existing medical colleges,” he said.
Dr Dang further stated, “The Union Budget has been a progressive budget that upholds our commitment to public welfare and advancement as a nation. As a spearhead on our path to development, it has laid down the priorities for the ‘Amrit Kaal’ and guided us for the future.”
“With a projected GDP of over 301 lakh crore for this year, the budget seems to be set to propel us onto a growth path despite the recent testing times,” he added.
