On retirement, every service personnel will compulsorily become a member of ECHS by contributing his share. Similarly, ex-servicemen can become members by making one time contribution. There will be no restriction on age or medical condition. This Scheme had been started by the then Prime Minister Mr Atal Bihari Bajpayee for the welfare of ex- service men community.”

More than 2 lakh people residing in this area will be getting cashless treatment from Ivy Hospital.
