Delhi offers health smart card to BPL families

The Government of Delhi distributed smart cards to BPL families for cashless treatment in more than 80 private and all government hospitals

New Delhi: The Government of Delhi on Saturday launched the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojna (RSBY) by distributing smart cards to below poverty line (BPL) families for availing free medical treatment in designated hospitals in the national capital.

Formally distributing the cards to poor families of Magol Puri in Delhi, the Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit informed that they will be able to get cashless treatment up to Rs 30,000 for a family of five persons on premium of just Rs 30 per annum.

The smart card consists of photographs of five members of the family, including its head, their fingerprints and a toll-free number. The beneficiaries are also being provided with a list of designated hospitals and nursing homes.

In addition to government hospital, this facility is also available in more than 80 private hospitals thereby providing cashless treatment for 750 types of diseases.

The centrally sponsored RSBY scheme aims to facilitate launching of health insurance project in the national capital territory (NCT) of Delhi to unorganised sector workers belonging to BPL families.

Speaking on the occasion, Dixit said more than about 28,000 BPL families had already been enrolled as beneficiaries since March 31, 2008 and about 4.5 lakh families are in queue.

Apart from the treatment cost, the beneficiaries would be entitled for a transport allowance up to Rs 100 for commuting to and from hospitals, with a maximum limit of Rs 1,000 per annum.

A toll-free helpline has been operationalised with number 1800-11-3300 to facilitate treatment in private designated hospitals and nursing homes.

State Labour Minister Mangat Ram Singhal said that a toll-free help line number 1800-11-3300 has been operationalised to facilitate treatment in private designated hospitals and nursing homes.

Making a BPL card

Respected Sir / Madam, I need a BPL card my economical problem is not well please need a BPL card

I appreciate your response

Dear editor,

You answered for a simple query from Vinod is appreciable. Personal touch is what is missing now-a-days in Indian Society. So a lot of problems.

I wish you all the best.

thank you

Thank you for your encouragement.

One of the things that is definitely missing - based on a lot of comments we get from around the country- is the lack of an information dissemination and feedback mechanism. Successive governments, no doubt, have taken some good initiatives to aid those who live on the margins, but there is a dearth of information about the same, as well as a lack of response to problems that exist in their implementation.

Unfortunately, we are not qualified to comment on a lot of queries we get, but we hope that others can come forward and help those who are seeking answers in some way at least!

Best regards,
Editor, iGovernment
