Wondering, what is Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana? What are the objectives of the Mukhyamantri Amrutum scheme?

The Below Poverty Line (BPL) households are facing vulnerability and catastrophic health risks. The severe diseases and higher medical expenses have pushed these families into poverty. To overcome these problems, the Gujarat State Government has launched Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana on September 4, 2012. In August 2014, it was extended to Mukhyamantri Amrutum Vatsalya Yojana.

The objectives of Mukhyamantri Amrutum Yojana are to provide financial protection and security and access to quality surgical health care to the BPL households. This involves hospitalisation, surgeries and therapies for the treatment of identified diseases.
