New Delhi: In a bid to provide support to the health institutions in the national capital, the Delhi government will set up “Rogi Kalyan Samitis” in each Assembly constituency and “Jan Swast-haya Samitis” in state-run dispensaries, polyclinics and mohalla clinics.

According to an order issued by the health and family welfare department on April 26, the Assembly Rogi Kalyan Samitis will be advisory in nature which will assist health facilities, develop and customise strategies among others, while Jan Swasthaya Samitis will be set up as its sub-committee.

It stated that each Ass-embly Rogi Kalyan Samiti and Jan Swasthaya Samiti will be provided Rs 3 lakh per annum as grand-in aid.

“The Jan Swasthaya Samitis will be constituted in Delhi government dispensaries/polyclinics, aam aadmi mohalla clinics, and primary urban health centres,” the order stated. The department said that each of Assem-bly Rogi Kalyan Samiti will be registered under Society Registration Act 1860 at Assembly constituency-level and they will adopt by-laws already approved for Rogi Kalyan Samiti (District).

“The quarterly financial progress report of Assembly Rogi Kalyan Samitis/Jan Swasthaya Samitis will be submitted regularly to the finance department and, the health and family welfare department,” it said.

The order said approval of the Central government will also be sought on any amendment in the scheme, if the department “deviates” from the guidelines approved by the Centre.
