Healthcare scheme for sr citizens planned from unclaimed deposits




The government is set to launch a healthcare scheme for senior citizens as part of its social security initiative. Sources said the scheme would be funded through unclaimed deposits available with the government for which the law has already been amended as part of the budget exercise.

The amendment will enable the government to tap a "co uple of thousand crores" for the healthcare scheme. "We will work out a threshold and people beyond that would be covered by the healthcare scheme," a source said.

In the absence of access to government medical facil ities, healthcare is seen as a crucial missing link for senior citizens who have to rely on family members to take care of them in old age.

The Centre has launched the PM's Jan Dhan Yojana which has provided banking facilities to all households not part of the banking system. It has resulted in almost Rs 15,000 crore flowing into the financial system that was lying idle in households.
