Punjab Cabinet on Wednesday gave in-principle approval to the implementation of the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojna. 

In the meeting held at Chandigarh, Cabinet extended the central scheme to cover over 42 lakh families, instead of the proposed 14.96 lakh families on Social Economic Caste Census. 

These include government employees, families of farmers, construction workers and small traders, as well as the other poor families currently covered under the Bhagat Puran Singh Sehat Bima Yojana - BPSSBY. 

The Cabinet decided to set up a committee under the Chief Secretary, to work out the financial modalities for the implementation of the scheme, to be implemented at an estimated cost of over 300 crore rupees, by cutting the budgets of other departments, as and where necessary. 

Cabinet also authorized the Chief Minister to rename the scheme for Punjab. 

An official spokesperson said, the estimated cost of annual premium at 1082 rupees per family would be shared between the Central and State Governments in the ratio of 60:40, which would cost 65 crore rupees to the state government annually.
