The overview takes into consideration the historical, socioeconomic, administrative, and technical factors which have played a prominent role in shaping India’s National Tuberculosis Programme. It comprises an analysis of the current status, trend during the past ten years and discussion of some aspects that need further attention. Now, a majority of the constraints are administrative and not even operational, while the needed technical improvements are few. At the present stage of development, it would appear premature to say if the programme has succeeded or failed.
