    No room for Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee patients at private hospitals in Nagpur

    rajeevNagpur News.

    With the onset of election season, the government at the Centre has begun boasting of its various public welfare schemes, one of them being Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee Aarogya Yojana which provided free treatment for 972 diseases to the poor and underprivileged patients. But as far the implementation of this scheme goes, the ground reality spells otherwise.

    Almost all the private hospitals have been blatantly ignoring the patients coming there to seek treatment under this scheme. Four months have been passed since the scheme was launched in Maharashtra and the poor statistics show that scheme proved to be good for nothing. In the past four months only 34 patients could manage to get treatment under Rajiv Gandhi Jeevandayee scheme.

    In Nagpur district alone an estimated 8.80 lakh patients are awaiting benefits under this scheme and going by the progress of implementation the benefit remains a far cry.

    The second phase of the scheme began from November 21 across Maharashtra.

    Apart from three government hospitals, the scheme was introduced in 25 private hospitals. The scheme provides for 972 treatments including serious accident, surgeries, by-pass, cancer treatment and others.

    The current trend shows most of the private hospitals have not attended to even a single patient under this scheme till this date. The patients reported that these hospitals deliberately avoid them and they have to helplessly move to the government hospitals for treatment.
