The poor and needy will now receive monetary assistance through the scheme of Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Jan Arogya Yojana department.

The forms will now have to be submitted to the offices of the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Jan Arogya Yojana in Worli.

As per a press release issued by the Governor’s office:

‘Forms for financial assistance under the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund will have to be submitted at the Mahatma Jyotiba Phule Jan Arogya Yojana (MJPAY) office in Worli. The officer will scrutinise all the applications and a team headed by chief executive office MJPAY will recommend cases which are eligible for financial assistance.’

Over the last few days, poor patients visiting the CM Relief Fund office in Mantralaya have found that their applications are not getting processed due to president rule in Maharashtra.

Earlier, the former Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis had met with Maharashtra Governor Bhagat Singh Koshyari and apprised him about the situation.

So far, the Maharashtra Chief Minister’s Relief Fund has disbursed more than Rs 550 crores to 56,318 needy people for medical requirements since 2014.
