IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao on Wednesday said the government was considering carrying out the comprehensive health checkup of every individual in the State in the near future.

According to 2011 census, the population of the State is 3.60 crore. The government would carry out health checkup, BP, diabetics and other diseases and maintain health profile of every individual as was being done in the West, the Minister said.

Besides maintaining health profile, the government would carry out health checkup every year and provide treatment to people on its own expenses, Rama Rao said while launching the Rythu Bhima insurance scheme in Therlumaddi of Mustabad mandal.

Talking about eye-testing programme ‘Kanti Velugu’ to be launched on August 15, KTR wanted the eye test to be done first on opposition leaders who were unable to see the developmental works taken up by the Telangana government. “They (the opposition) will be able to see the development if their eyes are treated in the camps,” he said.

In order to develop confidence among the farmers and their family members, the government has introduced an insurance facility to farmers under Rythu Bhima. Under the scheme, the government paid Rs 2,271 to LIC on behalf of every farmer.

Whether it was an accident or natural death, kin of the deceased farmers would get Rs 5 lakh within ten days of their demise.
