New Delhi: The healthcare industry Friday expressed disappointment over the Union Budget 2019-20 saying it hardly touched upon the sector and asked the government to consider increasing public spending on healthcare.

Max Healthcare in a statement said: "The private healthcare sector had a lot of expectations from the Union Budget. Unfortunately, the Union finance minister in her speech in Parliament, hardly touched upon this sector."

While appreciating the overall Budget and terming it a holistic and visionary Budget with many positives for the rural and social sector, Biocon CMD Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw said, "...however, absence of any incentive for healthcare in the budget is a big miss." (ET Healthworld – PTI, July 5, 2019)
