At present, most of the clinics are company-owned but in tier-III and tier-IV cities, the company has franchise partners, he added.
The group will also focus on expanding the reach of its FMCG products in India by doubling the number of outlets to 10,000 from 5,000 at present, he added.
“As we already have a substantial presence in India with 219 clinics, the emphasis here will be more on consolidation while in overseas the focus will be on expansion,” Batra said.
The company is also diversifying its product base, Batra said: “We are entering the nutraceuticals market with launch of four products.”
Founded in 1982 by Mukesh Batra, Dr Batra’s Healthcare has 226 clinics spread across around 130 cities in India, Dubai, the UK and Bangladesh.
