A total of 8 signatories need to verify the form.
How much time will it take to add the name missing in SECC 2011 data for Ayushman Bharat J&K?
5 days has been fixed to clear the name received by the Committee for including name in 2011 SECC Data for health insurance in Jammu and Kashmir.
We verified it with the officers at the ground level with Tehsildar in Paddar and found out that they have started accepting the applications. But, we think 8 signatories to verify a form that one should be included in a database is a bit inordinate exercise. It needs to be seen how much time does an applicant have to waste to get hold of all the authorized committee members. We hope the process is made simpler and the poor applicants do not have to run from pillar to post to complete the application for including the missing names in the SECC 2011 data.
