A report by Reuters revealed the decision of the Ministry of Finance (MoF) to cut nearly 20 per cent from the Health Ministry's budget for the year 2014-15. Earlier this year 31640 crore were allocated to health ministry for the financial year out of which over 6000 crore will now be deducted from the allocation said the report. The budget was hiked by 27 % from previous year for improving affordable healthcare in the country. Apparently it's not just the health Ministry that will be facing budget cuts in the financial year. Other ministries will also have their budgets slashed.
