Mumbai municipal corporation to provide free medical treatment for senior citizens
Here is some good news for senior citizens in Mumbai.
The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will provide free medical help for senior citizens at municipal hospitals.
The Maharashtra government had promised free medical check-ups for senior citizens in 2004. Two years ago, they decided to provide a 50% reduction in treatment at BMC hospitals.
Meanwhile, senior citizens could also avail free treatment from all government hospitals in the state. Now, they can go for a free treatment at municipal hospitals as well.
Apart from this, the Maharashtra government has started many other concessions for senior citizens. This includes fare concessions on buses.
