In the radio segment, companies have bid for FM licenses in 338 small towns and cities spread across the country in the second phase of liberalisation, and an overwhelming majority of these companies did not even have a presence in the entertainment and media space, let alone the radio sector, earlier, the report pointed out.

This sector has the potential of generating revenues of US$ 5 Billion and creating one million jobs by 2010 through products and services.

At present, India spends Rs 1,03,000 crore or 5.2 % of the country’s GDP on healthcare services. Of this, only 0.8 % is public expenditure while the rest is private.

Industry estimates expect this figure to rise to 8% of the GDP by 2012. The average state healthcare allocations have also come down from an average 7.02 % of the GDP in 1985-86 to 4.71 % of the annual budget in 2004-05.

Job creation/ Recent Developments: Healthcare, across the world, is considered to be the largest employer. Healthcare today offers direct employment to over 4 million people in India, which is expected to go up to almost 7 million by 2012. And the jobs are not just restricted to doctors and nurses. This sector would require a large number of paramedical staff, and more importantly a large number of managers with expertise across different functions.

Prime Actors: The Private Healthcare sector, said to be responsible for more than 80% of healthcare delivery in India, has invested heavily in setting up state-of-the-art Tertiary Care Institutes offering both general and specialty services. Major corporations like the Tatas, Apollo Group, Fortis, Max, Wockhardt, Piramal, Duncan, Ispat and Escorts have made significant investments in setting up state-of–the-art private hospitals in cities like Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai and Hyderabad.
