India on an average has around 10 million people with epilepsy. However, only around 60% of patients opt for treatment in urban society. This number is even fewer in the rural areas, where only 20-40% of patients receive appropriate treatment. Lack of proper treatment can affect education, psychosocial development and even premature deaths.”
