Of the 32 Indian states that the report considers, the six states i.e. Maharashtra, Rajasthan, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Andhra Pradesh are forecasted to represent approximately 50 per cent of the expenditure for 2009-2013 period. In comparison to all 32 states, Maharashtra forecasted to maintain its dominance as the state with highest cumulative healthcare infrastructure expenditure, with spend of USD 7.3billion between 2009 - 2013.
