It is estimated that there are nearly 50,000 cancer patients who need to avail treatment at various hospitals. Health Minister, Rao Narender, said it is important that cancer patients be given some facilities to ease problems of logistics.

Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, has agreed to the proposal by the health Department, to provide free travel facility to such patients in the Haryana Roadways buses.

To get this facility, cancer patients will need to carry identity cards given by the civil surgeons. The identity card will be valid for 15 visits. The government has allocated Rs 5 crores for this purpose.

Cancer is a serious disease and most patients need to make several visits for scans, chemotherapy sessions and treatment. This project endeavours to make the commute to hospitals easier for the victims.
