AP Govt To Strengthen Aarogyasri Scheme Further

The Andhra Pradesh Govt has decided to further strengthen the Aarogyasri scheme. It is true that Aarogyasri was established with the aim of providing state-of-the-art and best medical care to poor and middle-class people.

The state medical and health department is intensifying its efforts to increase the number of treatments under this scheme.

In 2019, all the families with an annual income below Rs.5 lakh were brought under the Aarogyasri scheme, thus 1.40 crore families are getting free medical treatment.


Services are currently available in more than 1,700 hospitals through this scheme. Apart from Andhra Pradesh, 137 private corporate hospitals and 17 super specialty hospitals in neighboring states are being treated by Aarogyasri.

Apart from bringing Corona treatment under the scope of the scheme, diseases like Black Fungus and Miss-C have also been included in it. While there are already 2,446 treatments in the Aarogyasri scheme, efforts are being made to include another 700 types of treatments in the scheme.

Meanwhile, CM Jagan had previously ordered the officials to implement the Aarogyasri scheme in a more transparent manner.


At present, 2,446 types of problems are being served. The Chief Minister suggested that the number should be further increased and ordered to give an idea on this issue within a week.

The Chief Minister said that it is the responsibility of the doctors to educate pregnant women about normal delivery in government hospitals. He clarified that the financial assistance given under Arogya Asara is being increased from Rs.3 thousand to Rs.5 thousand.

On the other hand, Chief Minister Jagan has decided to help financially those who are sick and confined to bed. To this end, the ‘Arogya Asara’ program has been launched.


For those who have undergone medical treatment, if the doctors advise them to take rest, they are being given an allowance of Rs. 225 per day, or Rs. 5,000 per month. Around 10 lakh people have already received financial assistance under this scheme.

Meanwhile, officials of the concerned groups have clarified that they are sending the related proposals to the government and once the permissions are received from there, they will be implemented at the field level.

    Chhatriwali Movie Review: Rakul Preet Singh’s film is informative but lags in bits

    I could never wrap my head around Bollywood’s obsession with continuously addressing condom as a chhatri or an umbrella. Not only it’s cringe to hear repeatedly but also, it somewhere defeats the whole purpose with which films around these subjects are made. Moreover, picking a taboo subject and making a film on it can turn out to be quite risky if you don’t stick to the agenda and beat around the bush. Thankfully, Rakul Preet Singh’s Chhatriwali, directed by Tejas Prabhaa Vijay Deoskar, doesn’t digress much, and follows a crisp screenplay. There are some flaws here and there, but with all the humour and lighter moments, they can be somewhat overlooked.
