Reactivate Disabled Ayushman Bharat Cards Issued Under SEC 2011 : Puneet Mahajan

Jammu, May 22, 2024 : Puneet Mahajan, the Convener of the Health and Medical Cell for the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in Jammu and Kashmir, has issued an urgent appeal to the general public to reactivate their Ayushman Bharat Golden Cards, especially those issued based on the Socio-Economic Census (SEC) of 2011. Many of these cards have been disabled and need to be recreated if they are not mapped with the National Food Security Act (NFSA ) database.

“A significant number of Ayushman Bharat cards created under the 2011 SEC are currently disabled, which is a major barrier to accessing essential healthcare services,” said Mr. Mahajan. “It is crucial that individuals check the status of their cards and take the necessary steps to reactivate or recreate them.”

The Ayushman Bharat scheme, also known as the Pradhan Mantri Jan Arogya Yojana (PM-JAY), aims to provide health coverage to over 10 crore poor and vulnerable families across India. To ensure continued access to healthcare, Mr. Mahajan advises all affected individuals to visit the nearest Common Service Centres (CSCs), any empanelled hospitals, or the State Health Agency (SHA) offices in Jammu and Kashmir to verify and update their card status.

“I urge the public to visit these centers and check the status of their Ayushman Bharat cards. If your card was made based on the 2011 SEC and is not mapped with the NFSA, it needs to be recreated to ensure it remains active,” Mr. Mahajan emphasized. In addition to reactivating existing cards, Mr. Mahajan appeals to all leftover eligible beneficiaries who have not yet registered for their Ayushman Bharat cards to do so immediately. “It’s vital for all eligible individuals to register and take advantage of this healthcare scheme. This will ensure they have access to the necessary medical services without financial burden.”

Mr. Mahajan calls on party workers , community leaders, social workers, and the general public to support this initiative by spreading awareness and assisting those who need to reactivate their Ayushman Bharat Golden Cards. “Together, we can ensure that everyone has access to the healthcare they need and deserve,” he added.
