This announcement was made under the Amrut Scheme. He said such retail stores would also be opened in Madhya Pradesh.

Nadda said the central government would provide all necessary assistance to the Madhya Pradesh government to improve the state’s health care facilities.

The Minister also said the construction of the Super Specialty block, being built at a cost of Rs 150 crore, would result in provision of quality medical facilities in the state.

He also announced setting up of a State Cancer Institute at a cost of Rs 120 crore, a trauma centre and the establishment of Central Government Health Scheme (CGHS) dispensary here.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who was also present on the occasion, said that after the construction of the super specialty block, the people of Jabalpur and nearby districts would not have to go outside the state for treatment.

“To provide better health services to the people is the biggest responsibility of any government. Up to Rs 2 lakh has been entrusted to collectors under the Rajya Bimari Sahayata Scheme,” Chouhan said.
