yMukhyamantri Amrutam “MA”

For people who are living below poverty line & lower income group, an illness not only represents a permanent threat to their income and earning capacity, but in many cases it results in the family falling into a trap of debt. When need to get treatment arises for a poor family they often ignore it because of lack of resources, fearing loss of wages, or they wait till the last moment when it is too late. Health and poverty are interwoven. These families are pushed into a vicious debt poverty cycle due to excessive expenditures arising out of catastrophic health shocks.

To address this key vulnerability faced by the BPL population in the Gujarat, Mukhyamantri Amrutam “MA” Yojana was launched on 4th September, 2012 by Government of Gujarat.

“MA Vatsalya” Yojana

When in the Lower middle class families, critical illness occur and when such families are not included in the definition of BPL so they cannot get free treatment, and they are not able to spend money for critical illness. So, Based on feedback from various stakeholders, the Scheme was extended to “all the families having an annual income Rs.1.20 lakh or below Rs.1.20 lakh per annum names as Mukhyamantri Amrutam Vatsalya” in August 2014.

 On 18/10/2017, the limit of income is been increased from Rs. 1.50 lakh to Rs. 2.50 lakh per annum for “MA Vatsalya” beneficiaries

  • All beneficiaries can avail cashless quality medical and surgical treatment for catastrophic illnesses related to:
  • Cardiovascular diseases,
  • Renal (Kidney) diseases,
  • Neurological diseases,
  • Burns,
  • Poly-Trauma,
  • Cancer (Malignancies), and
  • Neo-natal (newborn) diseases which covers 628 defined procedures along with their follow ups.

The Sum assured is up to Rs.2,00,000/- per family per annum on a family floater basis.

Rs. 300/- is paid to the beneficiary as transportation charges for every instance of availing treatment from the empanelled hospital.

Benefits to a unit of five members of the family (Head of family, spouse, and three dependents). A newborn is covered as 6th member of the family during that financial year.

For beneficiaries enrolment, Taluka kiosks and Civic Centre kiosks have been established at the Taluka and City civic center Kiosk where beneficiaries can enroll themselves, can get his/her card split, can addition/deletion of family members, and can get a new card in case of lost card. Mobile kiosks are also provided at each district for growingly enrollment.

Now let’s talk about the validity of MA Amrutam Card.

Well, if you read the eligibility for the MA Amrutam vatsalya card you will catch that candidate or beneficiary Must belong to the BPL Category. That means the annual income of the beneficiary of Amurtam yojana should be less then 4 lakh per annum.

To prove that your annual income is less then eligibility income, you have to provide the income certificate.

Now the validity of the income certificate is 3 years. Which means if you have to issue new certificate after 3 years. Now if your income has increased in 3 years then you will get the certificate stating your current increased income.

So after 3 years, if your income has been increased and you are not currently below the poverty line then you are not eligible for the MA Amrutam Vatsalya card according to the new income certificate. That’s why your previous MA Amrutam card is not valid.

So if i summarize all the details, then your MA Amrutam card validity is 3 years maximum.

Now as per the rule of government if your income has increased within 3 years of issuing the income certificate then you have to voluntarily announce your income infront of authority and issue a new certificate.
