Digital registry is key for continuity of care and to understanding patient medical history and treatment protocols followed at various times of the treatment process. This would take away the dependence on patients to keep their medical records in papers with them and the dependence on them for future treatment. The government should also take steps to integrate private health providers into a uniform medical record system so the medical data from various providers can come into one consolidated platform. This would revolutionize the entire health delivery in the entire nation.
Also, mental health has definitely become a thing of concern post-pandemic world. It is commendable that the government is highlighting the importance of mental health and trying to reach the people of India through telemedicine. But implementation of all these programs is to be looked into and as citizens of this country, we need to follow the activities that the government performs to implement these plans.

The budget is progressive. Stability in policy is the key feature, which include stability on tax laws, push towards digital economy, push towards infrastructure and Make In India. Adaptability of the Government towards digital innovation is a praiseworthy Initiative like, digital currency & digital university. Education through television has the potential to improve the quality of life.
In the current budget, to further electronics manufacturing, duty concessions have been given for high growth of electronics items. We also look forward to some action on the post life of electronics ( e-waste). Similarly, duty concessions have been provided on parts of mobile phones. Some action could have been implemented on waste management of these electronics under Swacch Bharat Abhiyaj or Digital India Scheme.

We welcome this year’s populist budget, where no major changes have been brought in income tax slabs. Significantly, the focus of the Budget was on ease of tax compliance, simplification and digitisation as well as ease of doing business. Moreover, measures have been taken to support small businesses and the rural economy are also taken in Budget 2022 towards consolidating Atmanirbhar Bharat. Besides, we must appreciate the move of recognising the importance of ‘Nari Shakti’ and three schemes that will be launched to provide integrated development for women and children.

The pandemic crisis needed some specific intervention particularly for people in the semi organised/ unorganised segment. The Budget seems to have more focus on the organised sector. Disappointing indeed.
