PM Modi to launch distribution of PMJAY-MA Ayushman Cards in Gujarat Today

New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will kickstart the distribution of Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana- Mukhyamantri Amrutam, PMJAY-MA Ayushman cards in Gujarat through video conferencing today.

Fifty lakh colored printed Ayushman cards will be distributed to all the beneficiaries across Gujarat, at their doorstep.

As the then Chief Minister of Gujarat, Mr. Modi started the Mukhyamantri Amrutam scheme in 2012 to protect poor citizens from the catastrophic costs of medical treatment and illness. In 2014, the scheme was extended to cover those families who are having an annual income limit of four lakh rupees.

Later this scheme was extended to several other groups as well and was rebranded as Mukhyamantry Amrutam Vatsalya (MAV) Yojana. Drawing from the experience of the success of the scheme, in 2018 the Prime Minister launched the Ayushman Bharat Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana providing coverage of up to five lakh rupees per family per year.

In 2019, the Gujarat government integrated Mukhyamnantri Amrutam Vatsalya with the Ayushman Bharat- Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana Scheme.
