“Cancer remains one of the top 5 causes of death in India. Unfortunately, the financial burden of cancer care treatment is also one the highest compared to other diseases. Considering the huge expenses for cancer care treatment, people must have dedicated cancer coverage, especially if there is a family history of cancer. Health insurance policies in India cover hospitalization costs associated with cancer treatment as a standard benefit. However, these plans might not cover every expense related to cancer, which can add up to a sizable sum.

"There might not be anything specific for B-school education in India but one highlight for me was the talk of the National Data Governance framework. Through this framework, it will allow us to get access to a lot of non-personal, anonymous data.  Research-intensive institutions will benefit greatly from this because one of the biggest hurdles one needs to overcome during the conducting of research is the lack of data. Other than that, we at GIM, ensure that we contribute substantially towards a green planet so it is heartening to see that the outlay for energy transformation is sizeable and the Government's support towards battery storage.  Also specific to our healthcare management program, it is no secret that sickle cell anemia has been a challenge in the country.
