Bengaluru: The Chief Minister has promised to continue the Arogya Nidhi scheme’s free medical treatment scheme for the Koraga tribal community.

In the districts of Udupi and Dakshina Kannada, the Koraga community is primarily concentrated. They are identified as a Particularly Vulnerable Tribal Group (PVTG).

Since 2008, free medical care has been offered to members of the Koraga community under the “Arogya Nidhi” scheme at authorised private hospitals. The people in the community benefited greatly from this. However, the financial grant to the PVTG was discontinued per an order made in August.

Udupi MLA Raghupathi Bhat had taken up the issue and brought it to the attention of the authorities. He brought up the matter during the Assembly session, and met with the Chief Minister to urge him to continue the scheme.

The Chief Minister has promised to issue a new government order to continue the PVTG scheme, informed Bhat.
