While it's great that IVF treatment is being funded, I have 3 major issues with this
1. The Parsis are a rich community. They have the highest per capita income in India. If they are worried about their declining numbers, why can't the community pay for the treatment themselves ? Why do they need government subsidies for this ?
2. Why should non-Parsi Indian taxpayers subsidise this treatment ? And why should this scheme be selectively for Parsis only ? Isn't this unconstitutional ? Aren't all Indian citizens entitled to the same rights ?
3. Why can't the government mandate that IVF treatment be covered by health insurers ? This would be much fairer for everyone.
