Recent Report by Niti Aayog

Niti Aayog has recently released a report on Investment Opportunities in Indian Healthcare Sector.

This Report provides an overview of India’s healthcare sector, including insights about its employment generation potential, the prevailing business and investment climate as well as the overarching policy landscape. It also highlights the key drivers of growth for the sector and the third section elaborates upon the enabling policies
and investment opportunities in 7 key segments, including hospitals and infrastructure, health insurance, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology, medical devices, medical tourism, home healthcare as well as telemedicine and other technologyrelated health services.

In the hospital segment, the expansion of private players to Tier 2 and Tier 3 locations, beyond metropolitan cities, offers an attractive investment opportunity. According to Invest India’s Investment Grid, there are nearly 600 investment opportunities worth USD 32 Billion (INR 2.3 Lakh Crore) in the country’s hospital/ medical infrastructure sub-sector

I have shared some key inputs from this report which is available in the public domain ( ) and wrote a short article in the Information Bulletin of Andhra Chamber of Commerce. Considering my longest innings in healthcare sector and having watched from close quarters about the private investments patterns into this domain, I have shared my thoughts, views on why the FDI investments route is not the right solution for pumping investments into healthcare domain.

My article is there in page 20 of Chamber’s bulletin which can be downloaded from here :
