Working on the vision that every person of Haryana gets the benefit of quality health care facilities, the state government has been continuously strengthening and expanding the health care services in the state.

Manohar Lal believes that the work of 2021 census was delayed due to Covid crisis and the number of Antyodaya families has been increased in last 10 years, therefore the Haryana Government has decided to consider the verified data of the Parivar Pehchan Patra to give benefits to those families whose name were not included in the 2011 census.
Under the Ayushman Bharat Scheme, 1.24 crore people from about 28 lakh families of Haryana will get benefits
