Punjab to become medical tourism hub

Deputy Chief Minister (DCM) of Punjab Sukhbir Singh Badal, said Punjab was all set to promote medical tourism as the sector has great scope to boost the state’s economy. Addressing a gathering while presenting the Human Achievers Awards at CII, Badal said the Medicity at New Chandigarh will be established on 300 acres with world-class hospitals being set up.

He said New Chandigarh had the potential to emerge as the medical hub for North India as the state is already equipped with first-class infrastructure in health sector as compared to other states.

The DCM also said that India was the second most populated country, but unfortunately governments had not paid much attention to medical facilities for the needy. Calling NGOs to come forward and save the girl child, Badal said the sex ratio in Punjab had improved due to efforts from NGOs and policies by the Punjab government.
