Odisha CM Distributes Health Smart Cards In Kalahandi District

Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik distributed Biju Swasthya Kalyan Yojana (BSKY) smart health cards to the beneficiaries in the Kalahandi district. A total of 14 lakh people will be benefited from the smart cards in the district.

Apart from distributing the health cards, the Odisha CM dedicated key development projects worth Rs 860 crore to the people of the district.

Addressing the gathering, the Chief Minister said that Kalahandi has been making great strides in all areas today.

Farmers in Kalahandi have caught everyone’s attention today. While the district’s rice production has reached 74 lakh tonnes, it has also won a national award for fish production. Kalahandi is the first among all the states to produce cotton said Patnaik adding that farmers’ incomes have risen sharply this year due to higher market prices for cotton.

The Chief Minister said that 3.5 crore people of 96 lakh families in the state would benefit from the Smart Health Card. This will help our poor people get rid of many health problems, especially the weaker section. Now people can get better treatment at 200 major hospitals in the country by holding a piece of the card without any hassle.
