“There is a need to invest in the medical devices”


I would suggest that there should be substantial investment in the development of technology that will help return to work sooner and also be able to offer telemedicine beyond teleconferences. I think there is a real opportunity to invest in technologies so that we bring diverse diagnostics and therapeutic modalities to various smaller communities, towns and also remote locations. There is a need to invest in the medical devices because we still import almost 70-80 per cent of the devices from outside which not only drains the economy but there are expenses we have to pay through various duties. Also, to keep ourselves prepared against potential global effects that can occur either due to unfortunate events or political issues, we must truly invest in India in various multiple technologies to make it truly Atmanirbhar.
