Ranchi: Feb 21, 2011
About 11.44 lakh families, who have recently added to the list of below the poverty line (BPL) by the State government, may soon have the reason to rejoice. The State government has decided to provide them free health insurance facility at par with those already classified as BPL by the Centre. While those listed as per the Central criterion already have the facility, the State government has decided to set a trust with corpus fund of Rs 25 crore to manage the payment of premiums for the free health insurance scheme of the newly included families.
