AGARTALA, Aug 25 (TIWN): Tripura Chief Minister Biplab Deb on Saturday while addressing at the 11th foundation day programme of Tripura Institute of Paramedical Sciences (TIPS) said that Tripura will be transforming its current medical service into world-level medical service which will help to earn huge revenues which may be Rs.200 crores to rs.250 crores.

CM said, “Medical Industry can give Rs. 200 crores to Rs. 250 crores revenue. Health service can be also a big industry, but industry with service. That is the reason PPP model has been called as new addition”.

“Competition is very important even in Govt hospitals and that’s why PPP model’s need comes here. All steps of Govt can not be successful but there should not be any strict-allergy with anything, just like earlier, PPP model’s idea was always dumped resulting a pale health infrastructure in Tripura hospitals”, Deb added.

“Tripura has the potentially for Medical hub. State Govt has started to work in this direction already. Tripura also has huge numbers of hospitals but people are travelling to Chennai and other states for treatment. Only due to flight charges the patient parties are costing at least Rs. 50,000. It means at least 2.30 lakhs are spent and also lots of patients from Bangladesh travel in other states, but if our state can provide similar quality’s health service like outside hospitals all the patients will come here in Tripura and this will bless Tripura’s economy”, he added.
