Revised Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package 2021
Pradhan Mantri Garib Kalyan Package (PMGKP): Insurance Scheme for Health Workers Fighting Covid-19 was launched w.e.f. 30.03.2020 to provide comprehensive personal accident cover of Rs. 50 lakh to 22.12 lakh healthcare providers, including community health workers and private health workers drafted by the Government for Covid-19 related responsibilities, who may have to be in direct contact and care of Covid-19 patients and who may be at risk of being impacted by this.
The Scheme was implemented through the purchase of an Insurance Policy by the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare (MoHFW) from the Public Sector New India Assurance Company Limited (NIACL). Initially, the validity of the Insurance Policy was for 90 days.
After the launch of the Scheme, it emerged that the pandemic may continue to affect the population in India for a longer period. Therefore, to ensure the safety net for Health Workers working in the frontline, the scheme was extended twice up to 24.03.2021. Also, the number of lives covered under the Insurance Policy was increased by payment of additional premium.
