Health Card to NKDA drivers

I went to NKDA today morning to see Viswakarma Puja idol at NKDA. Taking advantage of the  Viswakarma puja, NKDA made he alth cards for all drivers of NKDA. This is a helath insurance card where each driver has to pay only Rs 30 per year an they are guaranteed paybacks for certain amounts on account of death even (natural / non-accidental), serious diseases (cancer etc) and even for various issues like childrens' education, marriage ceremony etc. This was done in co-operation with labour department. I very much appreciated the initiative taken by Gopal Ghosh CEO NKDA and Achintyababu in wading through complex procedures to ensure that benefits reach the drivers of cars used by the office.

  1. Great way of helping the weaker section of society by giving health cards. These little steps will help in making the society a much better place to live in
