Govt making policies without doing their homework?

Friday, February 09, 2018

India's plan for the world's largest public healthcare system as outlined in the Budget, could flop. India does not have the network of medical centres, doctors, insurance company branches, etc., to execute a health plan for the village in the rural hinterland. Hence, the proposed health insurance proposal is wobbly. The Government is becoming habituated to making public pronouncements to garner attention and votes, without doing adequate homework. Two such other instances of drum-beating are Demonetisation, which failed to flush out any unaccounted wealth and the GST, which is yet fumbling and confusing in its various provisions. It is better for the government to take a low profile and deliver some concrete results, instead of launching half-baked schemes, like the marketing team of a consumer products company. Managing a country is very different from managing a consumer products company. Every policy pronouncement is not a product to be launched with fanfare and din. The policy or the product, has to deliver results to be credible.
