It is sorry to see that rural Delhi is paying more than urban areas of Delhi. All of us have the right to quality health. Master Plan Delhi 2021(MPD 2021) has ambitious provisions for creating a huge healthcare hub at rural Delhi, which is awaiting urbanisation notification from Delhi ’s Kejriwal Govt.

Implementing Land Pooling Policy, which is held up by Kejriwal Govt, is the long term solution to healthcare woes of people of outer and rural Delhi. Such problems would disappear when LLP comes into effect, as it would boost more opportunities of medications and other healthcare services, which would ultimately cut down overall cost . We hope Delhi Government soon take on positive actions of LLP.
