The Editorial Board invites submissions for the RSRR Journal for Volume 6, Issue 1 on “Healthcare in India: Tracing the Contours of a Transitioning Regime”.


Healthcare system is akin to an oiled machine driving the wheels of growth. It is not only necessary for the expansion of the economy but also for its sustenance and survival. In the absence of accessible healthcare, the entire workforce of a nation can be rendered handicapped. A sound healthcare system ensures less financial burden on both the citizens and the exchequer, and the constant availability of an active workforce, resulting in a mushrooming economy.

The policies framed in pursuit of effective provision of healthcare play a crucial role in the growth of this sector. The recent actions taken by the government include the ‘Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana’, the National Medical Commission Act, 2019 and the Mental Healthcare Act, 2017. Certain steps are yet to materialize and they include bills like the National Commission for Indian System of Medicine Bill, 2019, the National Commission for Homoeopathy Bill, 2019 and the Allied and Healthcare Professions Bill, 2018 and the Right to Health Bill has also been tabled in the State of Rajasthan.
