50% Of Premium Paid By Government For Auto, Taxi Driver

According to Oscar Fernandes, Minister for Road Transport and Highways, the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojna (RSBY) scheme will deal with the health related issues of auto rickshaw and taxi drivers. Under this scheme, the government will be paying 50 per cent of the premium amount, thereby extending health insurance support. Now these people can avail cashless health insurance cover based on the smart-card concept. Because the taxi drivers and auto rickshaw drivers are responsible for forming the major portion of the defenseless and vulnerable section of unorganized workers

living in the urban areas, the RSBY scheme will take care of their health concerns.

An official from road safety informed that taxi and auto rickshaw drivers need Rs 30 as the registration fee and 50 percent of the premium for the Rashtriya Swasthya Bima Yojan depending on the rules applicable in the respective district. Whereas, the rest of the 50 per cent of premium will be taken care by the State as well as the Central Government (distributing a share of 25% each)

As per the official statement, Ministry of Road Transport and Highways’ nodal officer is nominated for the execution of the RSBY scheme. Also, in case of other states, the nodal officers of the following states have also been notified for the same- Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Jharkhand, Kerala, Karnatak, Chhattisgarh and West Bengal.
