Delhi Allocates ₹8,600 Crore for Health Sector in 2024-25 Budget, Striving for “Ram Rajya”

Delhi’s finance minister, Atishi, unveiled the 2024-25 budget with a focus on healthcare, allocating ₹8,685 crore for the health sector. The budget, with an overall outlay of ₹76,000 crore, reflects the government’s commitment to transforming Delhi’s healthcare system and realizing the vision of “Ram Rajya.”

Atishi emphasized the significant progress made in healthcare under the Arvind Kejriwal-led administration over the past nine years, describing the transition from helplessness to strength. She highlighted the dire state of Delhi’s hospitals before 2014, emphasizing the government’s efforts to improve conditions and provide quality healthcare services to all residents.

Quoting from Tulsidas’ Ramcharitmanas, Atishi underscored the importance of ensuring the good health of every individual, aligning with the principles of “Ram Rajya.” She lamented the distance between this vision and the current reality but expressed determination to bridge the gap through robust healthcare initiatives.

The allocated budget for the health sector marks a strategic investment in improving medical infrastructure, enhancing services, and ensuring accessibility for all citizens. Atishi outlined plans to address various challenges faced by Delhi’s healthcare system, including the provision of adequate funds for essential medical services and facilities.

Despite challenges posed by disputes with the lieutenant governor and the Union government, the Delhi government remains committed to advancing healthcare initiatives and overcoming obstacles to deliver quality care to residents. Atishi’s budget presentation reflects a comprehensive approach to healthcare governance, aiming to create a healthier and more resilient Delhi for all its inhabitants.
