Odisha Government Plans 149 Ambulances for Tribal Districts in the State

The Odisha government will soon be launching 149 more ambulances for tribal dominated districts of the state. The government also has many other important schemes planned. Here’s more.

Government of Odisha announced its plan of launching 149 more ambulances in service in the tribal districts of the state on Wednesday, June 3.



The ambulances will have necessary life saving equipments and trained staff.

In addition to this, the government is also planning to set up low-cost hospitals through public-private partnership model.

In addition to this, the state government plans to come up with diagnostic centres in October. Upgrading Capital Hospital into a PG institute is also being considered with an investment of Rs. 143 crore.

The government is also working to implement Biju Bal Vikash Yojna, a new scheme to rehabilitate orphans and destitute children. Odisha’s CM Naveen Patnaik has asked the department to construct buildings for anganwadi centres as 45,000 such centres are running without a permanent building.
