India is looking into providing tax incentives to employers providing health insurance, reports the Economic Times.

 

Planning commission deputy chairman Montek Singh Ahluwalia told the Times that government should  make it mandatory for employers to get group insurance for their workers. To encourage employers to provide health cover, the government must provide incentives.

 

"We will never be able to spread (health) insurance for which people pay unless an element of incentive-cum-compulsion is introduced," Ahluwalia told the Times.
