About Atal Amrit Abhiyan

Inspired by our Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of “Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas”, the State Government of Assam has launched the Atal Amrit Abhiyan scheme to ensure health safety of the residents of Assam.

In today’s society, the cost of treatment has increased a lot. Many people die without treatment due to a lack of money. For this reason, under the initiative of the govt of Assam, the Assam Health and Welfare Committee has launched a new Scheme Called “Atal Amrit Abhiyan” to provide a medical insurance of up to Rs 2 lakh per annum to the poor and middle-class people of Assam for their treatment purposes

Objective Of This Scheme

  • To provide completely free medical treatment to all poor people in West Bengal
  • Reducing the Mortality Rate in the State
  • To address this key vulnerability faced by the BPL population and Low-Income households in the State
  • To ensure the health protection of every poor and helpless family in West Bengal
  • To keep the state Healthy

 The Health Assurance Scheme, Atal Amrit Abhiyan aims at making treatment more affordable and also to limit the disastrous financial impact that households often experience due to out-of-pocket spending.
