“Ayushman Bharat Scheme will create an entirely new ecosystem which helps to create healthier India. The scheme will boost set up of new hospitals in tier 2-3 cities, which also increases job opportunities in the healthcare sector, he added. More number of generic medicines are now available for the people which will not only reduce the cost of health care but also save many precious lives”, he added.
