It also pointed out that in the hospital segment, the expansion of private players to tier-II and tier-III locations, beyond metropolitan cities, offers an attractive investment opportunity.
According to the report, around 65 per cent of hospital beds in India cater to almost 50 per cent of the population concentrated in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Telangana, West Bengal and Kerala.
"The other 50 per cent of the country''s population living in the remaining 21 states and 8 Union Territories has access to only 35 per cent of hospital beds. As per the report, non-metros (Tier-II and III cities) are expected to recover faster than the metropolitan areas and tier-I cities, as they were less badly hit by the COVID-19 outbreak.
The report was released by Niti Aayog Member V K Paul, CEO Amitabh Kant, and Additional Secretary Rakesh Sarwal. The COVID-19 pandemic has not only presented challenges but also several opportunities for India to grow. All these factors together make India''s healthcare industry ripe for investment," Kant wrote in the foreword.
