Furthermore the first phase will see Ola and AB-PMJAY conduct a pilot in delhi NCR, which will subsequently be rolled out at scale to other cities across the country. Perhaps eligible driver partners as well as Ola employees, across verticals, will be able to avail the benefits of the program and obtain an Ayushman Bharat card at a minimal cost of Rs 30.

Dr praveen Gedam, Deputy CEO, Ayushman Bharat PM-JAY said in a statement “The goal of AB-PMJAY scheme is to provide access to quality curative health care and ensure it reaches every last citizen who is eligible. Ola, as india’s largest mobility platform reaches out to a vast network of drivers”.
