The scheme is estimated to benefit pregnant women who access Government health facilities for their delivery. Moreover it will motivate those who still choose to deliver at their homes to opt for institutional deliveries.
The scheme was launched in June 2011 to eliminate out-of-pocket expenses for both pregnant women and sick infants.
Free and Cashless Delivery, Free C-Section, Free diet during stay in the health institution - 3 days in case of normal delivery and 7 days in case of caesarean section.
In 2014, the programme was extended to all antenatal & post-natal complications of pregnancy and similar entitlements have been put in place for all sick newborns and infants (up to one year of age) accessing public health institutions for treatment.
