"Mission Indradhanush is one of them which has so far helped 55 lakh children get immunised against several diseases," he said. For the first time in India the Union Budget will be presented on February 1.

Mukherjee also referred to the Pradhan Mantri Jan Aushadhi Scheme -- a government initiative -- that helped healthcare and medicines reach the poorest section of the society.

Talking about the government's Pradhan Mantri Surakshit Matritva Abhiyan (PMSMA), Mukherjee said: "Such initiatives will assure that pregnant women are well taken care of."

"Under this scheme pregnant women on the ninth of every month will get fixed-day assured, comprehensive and quality antenatal care," he added.
