Supriya Rathi, whole-time director and principal officer at Anand Rathi Insurance Broker Private Ltd on Tuesday expects a revision in 80D limit and lowering of GST on health insurance products.
In an interview to CNBC-TV18’s Surabhi Upadhyay, Rathi said, "Health insurance in the last few years has seen accelerated growth of over 20 percent each and every year. But we have a long way to go and with Ayushman Bharat Yojana and a lot of government schemes, the centre is doing its bit and these are good trends. However, we are still far from where the developed world is."
Speaking about women policy buyers, she said, "Traditionally, financial planning and insurance has been done by the principal earner that is usually men. Despite women coming into the workforce in large numbers, this is still taken care of by the men."
