With medical technology shooting at sky limits, India is no stranger to the growing compliances in this field. India has immense number of skilled physicians and nurse practitioners. Over the last two decades, the economic boom in India has led to the building of medical facilities & infrastructure that rival the very best that western medical care that the west has to offer. The reduced cost and international quality standards in this field put’s India in the top three medical tourism destinations in Asia.
Medical Tourism in India is provided by the Travel India Company a highly reputed tourism operator in Bengaluru. India is at its medical tourism peak, with an estimated value of $ 4 Billion in the near future and a reported 150,000 medical tourists coming to India in 2005, based on feedback from the Confederation of Indian Industry’s member hospitals. The Indian government is taking steps to improve infrastructure issues that hinder the country's growth in medical tourism by removing visa restrictions on tourist visas that required a two-month gap between consecutive visits for people from Gulf countries which is likely to boost medical tourism. The government is providing the “M-Visa” to foreigners coming to India for Medical purposes is one such step for the same.

Due to the boom in medical tourism many practicing physicians who were well settled in USA & Europe have returned to India, further improving the medical facilities and cost effective medical treatments along with high standard cardiology, orthopedics, and nephrology, oncology and neurosurgery. In India, medical treatment is not only fast but also costs a fraction of what it costs in USA or Europe. These initiatives support the “Make in India” program by the Indian government, to encourage multinational Companies and domestic companies to manufacture their products in India. The major objective behind the initiative is to focus on key sectors of the economy for job creation and skill enhancement.
