Prasad said, "The government is working to develop the rural community both socially and economically so as to build an inclusive and enlightened India. With the availability of tele-consultation, the government can redefine the extension of affordable and quality healthcare to citizens, especially in rural India. I hope this will become a game-changer not only for India but also exemplary for other countries across the globe."
