The central government is gearing up to connect 7 million new families with the Ayushman scheme by 2024 through the Ayushman Bhava campaign. Under this, the central government has set a target of making Ayushman cards for 35 million new people.

Earlier in 2018, the central government had identified 10.74 million such families, i.e. around 50 million people, to be covered under the Ayushman scheme. Now, under this scheme, it is said that those people who have not been registered anywhere due to lack of fresh census after 2011, will also be added to the number of Ayushman beneficiaries.

According to an estimate, there are two crore such families, i.e. about 10 crore people. So far around 25 crore Ayushman cards have been issued. The government wants to increase the total number of Ayushman beneficiaries to 60 crore by October 2 next year. According to sources, the new beneficiaries will include garbage collectors, beggars, domestic servants, transport workers, helpers, painters, masons etc.
