Raipur. Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel has given instructions to seek the cooperation of the private sector for further strengthening the health facilities in rural areas. The Chief Minister said that they plan to provide the services of specialist doctors in rural areas. For this, the Government hopes for cooperation from the private sector. The state government will provide grant subsidy to the private sectors, especially for the construction of hospitals in rural areas. Chief Minister has directed the Industries Department to prepare an action plan for grant subsidy within the next ten days. In the last two and a half years, State Government has taken several steps to improve and enhance health services in rural areas of the state. But, the availability of specialist doctors in small districts remains a challenge.
Chief Minister has said that support and cooperation of the private sector are important for the expansion of health infrastructure, especially in rural areas. He has said that the Government will provide many different types of grants and subsidies to build industries in the state. The service sector industries can also benefit from these grants. At present, there is no provision of any incentive to establish private sector hospitals. Therefore, to strengthen the health infrastructure, grants and subsidies will be provisioned to encourage the private sector to set up hospitals in rural areas.
