Hakshelgi Tengbang (chief minister health scheme manipur) 2019 cmhtmanipur.gov.in [Application Form, Process, Hospital List, Treatment List]
One of the utmost important responsibilities of any state government is to provide adequate medical facilities for the residents. But huge population and lack of infrastructure often hinders this task. With time, the cost of attaining medical treatment has only gone up. It may be easy for rich to tolerate this cost, but poor people find it very difficult to arrange necessary funds to meet medical expenses. So, it is the responsibility of state government to design and implement such projects, which offer respite to such poor people. In this respect, Manipur government has launched the Chief Minister-gi Hakshelgi Tengbang scheme. It will offer cashless treatment facility for poor, widows and handicap individuals at enlisted hospitals.
