RIL plans Rs 25k cr healthcare initiative over 7-8 yrs

According to sources, Reliance Industries (RIL) plans a Rs 25,000 crore healthcare initiative over 7-8 years. The healthcare initiative will integrate with Reliance Retail foray.

This is one of the biggest plans that RIL has formulated on the lines of its retail foray, as it plans to set up 1,500 healthcare units in B, C towns.

A pilot project, is already under implementation at Jalandhar and will be replicated at all the existing primary healthcare centres of the government, which probably don’t give the right kind of service that is needed to service the healthcare needs of the rural population.

Over the next 7-8 years, the plan is to invest up to Rs 25,000 crore in rural healthcare population. McKinsey had earlier predicted that by 2015 the Indian healthcare market itself will become USD 20 billion, probably Reliance will play a massive role in getting to that figure.
