Due to the slowdown of the officers, the Ayushman India in the state could not catch the pace of the plan. About two million people have been considered eligible for this scheme in Uttarakhand. So far, only three hundred of these people have got treatment. In one of the three districts, till now no single patient was admitted in hospitals under the scheme. The State Government has named the Ayushmann Bharat Scheme as the Atal Ayushman Yojana. In the first phase of the scheme started in September, a total of 5,37,000 families have to be given free treatment. But due to the laxity of the Directorate General of Health and Health, the scheme is not yet proven to be beneficial for the people.
The result of negligence of the officers is that even a single patient can not be treated in Bageshwar, Champawat and Nainital. While very few people are able to get treatment even in other districts. The situation of the scheme can be estimated from this that there is no single patient in Haldwani and Srinagar Medical College, the largest health centers of the government.Only three patients could get treatment in government medical college in the capital. In addition to an IAS officer in the initial directorate of Atal Ayushman Yojna, besides five directors, several doctors and dozens of employees have been deployed. Not only this, many officers in the districts and hospitals are also looking at the work of this scheme.
The common people do not even know the plans. So that people can not get treatment. The launch of Ayushman Bharat Scheme is definitely slow but now it will be expedited. The authorities have been instructed. The process of registration of hospitals etc. has been completed to a great extent. Now focusing on giving benefits to the scheme to more and more people is being focused. Action will be taken against officials who are involved in the scheme.
