Jharkhand Gives Health industry status
The state government of Jharkhand has given health the status of industry. The positive step forward will enable the health sector to receive all facilities provided under the industrial policy. Nursing homes and pathological labs will receive incentives and infrastructure support.

The government move is expected to give a new lease of life to the health sector in state, where half the population lives below the poverty line. It will encourage private players in setting up nursing homes in rural areas.

Jharkand is a new state that has been formed splitting the large state of Bihar. Most of south Bihar with its rich natural resources now forms the state of Jharjand. Tourism already enjoys the status of industry in Jharkhand.
