Deendayal Chalit Chikitsalaya for MP Govt


Madhya Pradesh has a large proportion of scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, and BPL in its population. Lack of treatment facilities, especially for hospitalization, was a major cause of concern to the families of these groups. Madhya Pradesh Government, aiming to provide social security to these underprivileged sections of the society in the health sector, launched ‘Deendayal Chalit Chikitsalaya’ Or ‘Arogya Rath.

The scheme was intended to serve the families below the poverty line belonging to the Schedule castes (SCS) and Schedule tribes (STS). The scheme provided free treatment and investigation facilities.


The whole approach was indeed very concentrated on touching and retouching the patients within a time frame of two weeks. Target areas were covered block-wise wherein a certain number of villagers were targeted, and right after a week from the first visit, the van and bus went to the same area again and again. 

The premise for the camp was one of the central areas at the village, community center, panchayat bhawan, primary school, petrol pumps, mosques, temples, etc., as a suitable location. 

One qualified, experienced MBBS doctor looked after the walk-ins with the help of one nurse, and the activity supervisor and pharmacist too were part of the team.
