 Govt to Provide Major Boost to Health Insurance in 2012-13 Budget

The Indian government is likely to give a major boost to health insurance, apart from other grassroots and resource-starved sectors in a bid to arrest slowdown in the union Budget to be presented next month.

A big chunk of funds for capital expenditure will go towards universalization of health insurance, to be administered by the labour ministry.
